GIS Map Controls

The GIS Map contains two sets of controls to work with. Here belong:

  1. Toolbar controls - [not available in experiment results] use them to add facilities to your supply chain model and show/hide the names of the facilities and the paths between the facilities.
  2. Filter options - use them to filter the elements that are shown on the GIS Map.
  3. Structure view - the floating button toggles the view shown to a user (GIS map / scenario logic structure).

Toolbar controls

Button Command Description
Panning Mode Turns on the Panning mode, which allows you to pan and zoom the GIS map.
Create Customer Turns on the editing mode, which allows you to add customers to the supply chain model.

To add a customer, double-click in the required location on the GIS map. A customer icon will appear on the GIS map and a new entry will be added to the Customers table.

Create Warehouse Turns on the editing mode, which allows you to add warehouses (DCs) to the supply chain model.

To add a warehouse, double-click in the required location on the GIS map. A warehouse icon will appear on the GIS map and a new entry of the DC type will be added to the DCs and Factories table.

Create Factory Turns on the editing mode, which allows you to add factories to the supply chain model.

To add a factory, double-click in the required location on the GIS map. A factory icon will appear on the GIS map and a new entry of the Factory type will be added to the DCs and Factories table.

Create Supplier Turns on the editing mode, which allows you to add suppliers to the supply chain model.

To add a supplier, double-click in the required location on the GIS map. A supplier icon will appear on the GIS map and a new entry will be added to the Suppliers table.

Filters

Button Command Description
Show / Hide filters Opens filter options, allowing you to filter elements and connections shown on the GIS map and in the Structure view. The filter options comprise:
  1. Filter controls - the set of controls, triggering visibility of the elements on the GIS map (Customers, Sites, Suppliers, Paths, Labels).
  2. Filter parameters - advanced filter parameters allowing you to manually specify the objects to filter.

Customers Triggers the visibility of all the customer icons on the GIS map.
Sites Triggers the visibility of all the site icons on the GIS map.
Suppliers Triggers the visibility of all the supplier icons on the GIS map.
Show / Hide Connections Triggers the visibility of the connections between the elements of the GIS map, which represent Sourcing policies defined for the supply chain facilities.
Connections may be not shown for the following reasons.
Show / hide Labels Triggers the visibility of the supply chain facilities' labels on the GIS map.
A label of the facility is a value of the Name column in the corresponding table.

GIS map / Structure view

Button Name Description
Show Structure Switches the GIS map view to scenario Structure view.
Show Map Switches the layout to GIS map view.

Filter parameters

The filter parameters allow you to manually specify the objects to filter. The parameters are:

  • suppliers - filters suppliers, leaving only the selected elements on the GIS map.
  • sites - filters sites, leaving only the selected elements on the GIS map.
  • customers - filters customers, leaving only the selected elements on the GIS map.
  • products - filters paths, leaving only the paths delivering the selected products.
  • periods - filters paths per selected period, i.e., the path will not be visible, if it is not used within the selected period.
  • vehicle types - [not available in GFA scenario] filters paths per selected type of a vehicle.
  • All sources / Best Source - [available in SIM scenario type only] filters the sources by either the available ones or just the best ones (based on the defined sourcing parameters).
  • Clear all - removes all the defined filters. All elements will become visible on the GIS map.
