Import Scenario and Observe Results
In this phase we will obtain the input data, run the
observe the results. You may use your own input data as the
basis for our experiment, or you may fetch and
import our scenario.
Either way, you should have a supply
chain model containing
the following parameters:
- Customers with demand
- Distribution centers with
limited inventory policies
- At least one factory
producing the required product(s)

- Fetch the scenario.
No internet connection is required, since the scenario is supplied with
the downloaded scenario. The GIS map will appear showing the content of
the imported scenario.
- Explore the connections by clicking the Show filters
button to open the filter options, and then clicking
Show connections button.
The imported scenario contains a supply chain with 97
the largest cities of the United States, 6 distribution
centers, and the headphone factory.
