Suppliers

This table allows you to specify product suppliers - external objects with infinite amount of any product in stock. We have no control over this object, but we can gather its data for further analysis.

If required, you can extend the supplier object via the extensions manager.

A supplier cannot be set as a delivery destination. It does not accept any products.

The supplier of the selected record will be highlighted on the map.

Column Description

Name

Name of the supplier.

It must be a meaningful name since you will refer to it in other anyLogistix tables.

Type

Supplier type. The default supplier type is “Supplier”, but it can be replaced with your own (extended) supplier type.

Location

Reference to a particular location defined in the Locations table.

Products

[Available in GFA scenario type]

Defines the product or a group of products that the current supplier offers.

Inclusion Type

Defines the status of the given supplier:

  • Include - include this supplier into supply chain configuration.
  • Exclude - exclude this supplier from supply chain configuration. If selected, the table record will be grayed out to denote the current inclusion type. The table record stays editable.

    If you feel that your scenario contains too many objects marked as "Excluded" and you know that you no longer use them, you can instantly remove all such objects.

Additional Parameters

[Available in SIM scenario types]

Icon

Here you define an icon that will represent this particular object only. All other objects of this type will keep their current icons.

Initially the default icon is set to all suppliers (can be changed in Edit Icons ).
