This table is used within the Network Optimization experiment only. It allows you to define the range limiting the desired number of sites in your supply chain. The experiment will use this data to find the optimal number of sites (or supersites) and their locations.
e.g. Our supply chain contains 50 DCs distributed over a certain area and we feel that a number of super DCs could significantly improve this supply chain. By creating a record in this table we specify the group of DCs to consider (create a group of these DCs in the Groups table), and the min and max quantity of the super DCs that we would like to have. The NO experiment will consider this record to provide us with the optimal solution.
|Group||Specify the group of the DCs to consider.|
|Min||Specify the minimum number of DCs (or super DCs) that you require to have in the current supply chain.|
|Max||Specify the maximum number of DCs (or super DCs) that you require to have in the current supply chain.|
|Time Period||The time period during which the constraints are valid.|
Defines the status of the given group.
