Greenfield analysis is used to find optimal number of distribution centers as well as for defining the approximate locations for the supply chain sites taking into account the following data:
- Locations of the customers/sites
- List of products
- Aggregated demand for each customer and product
- Direct distance between customers and DCs/Warehouses or number of facilities we need to find
Note: Since the GFA experiment does not take into account roads, cities, means of transportation etc. it may suggest putting DCs on top of a mountain or in a sea. If you want the experiment to consider roads, run the GFA with roads experiment.
You can also use it as the Brownfield analysis to extend the existing properly functioning GFA scenario.
To create an experiment you need to previously create at least one scenario.
