Running the Advanced TO Experiment
Prior to running the experiment you must make sure that your scenario
is properly configured. Pay attention to the following:
- A user account
is required to access the experiment parameters.
- Customers - you cannot specify the customers to
consider. By default all customers of a site are considered,
unless their inclusion type is set to Exclude
in the Customers table.
- Sourcing policy - if a customer is not specified
in the sourcing policy, it will be excluded from the experiment.
- Fleet - the specified site must have at least 1
vehicle type in its fleet.
- Vehicle types - all types of vehicles
from the site's fleet are considered.
- Paths - (Only Distance-based with fixed cost
calculation formula is supported) if a customer is specified in the
sourcing policy but has no paths leading to and from it, it
will not be serviced, i.e. to properly generate a delivery route, the Paths table must contain records
allowing a vehicle to set off from a DC, reach the first
customer, continue to move from one customer to another one, and
finally, complete the route by returning back to the DC it set off.
Make sure that the Paths
table contains the following type of records:
- Site to Customer
- Customer to Customer
- Customer to Site
