anyLogistix offers a number of experiments which
can be used to design and optimize the supply chain structure and
provide the best
possible solution to meet specific requirements.
- We know that there is certain demand for Sony
consoles among our customers.
- Our customers comprise a total of 20
locations scattered throughout the United States.
- We are struggling to minimize the
delivery costs and maintain high quality level of service at
and the same time.
This is the task that the Greenfield Analysis
experiment can cope with.
In this tutorial we will learn how to set up the GFA
experiment, run it and use the results that it offers.
Let us see how GFA can help us out here.
Greenfield Analysis considers the following data that
we will specify during the tutorial steps:
Note: GFA does not take into
roads, cities, peculiarities of geographical areas
etc., that is why it may suggest
DCs on top of a mountain or in the middle of a sea. To consider actual roads and population of the cities, use the GFA with roads experiment.
- Locations of the customers
- Demand for each customer and product
- Direct distance between customers and DCs/Warehouses
