NO Master Planning

We consider a cheese distribution network on the territory of France with cheese plant (located in Laval) supplying groceries with corresponding weekly historic demand. Seven warehouses are spread over the country, and three potential DC locations are: Limoges, Orleans, and Auxerre.

The goal is to find the best DC locations. and estimate the amount of product the cheese plant should
produce each month.

The result of the experiment offers to locate DC in Orleans, Auxerre, and Limoges. Production amount at each period does not exceed 1600 wheels of cheese. Laval factory works at full capacity just first eight months due to accumulation of available inventory in the preferred DC. We completely satisfy demand regardless of which DC is selected.
