Getting Started with ALX

You are using anylogistix, the only multimethod software for supply chain network design, analysis, and optimization.

ALX allows you to create and configure supply chains by modifying their data within the tables of the corresponding scenario.

Supply chain scenarios are stored in a project, which can contain unlimited quantity of scenarios.

Starting anylogistix for the first time

If you're using Professional version you will be asked to provide your license, if it is PLE version (Personal Learning Edition) that you are using, you will be taken directly to the Welcome screen, which allows you to:

Let us continue by creating a new scenario.
  1. Click the New Scenario button.
    ALX will create a database for the new project, which might take a few seconds. 

    Note: anyLogistix automatically checks if a newer version is available. If you are using an older version, you will see a pop-up message prompting you to update to the latest version:

    Once the new project is created, you will be taken to the ALX layout. By default ALX creates project in the Single user mode. It is a non-protected type of a project with no owner defined for it. If protection is required you can do either of the following:

    That's it. ALX navigates us to its layout, allowing us to proceed with what we have previously chosen on the welcome screen. Since we left the welcome screen by clicking the New Scenario button, ALX will now show the Scenario Properties dialog box, allowing us to quickly set up a new scenario. We could have also ended up with:

Now it is time to design your first supply chain!
