Structure View

The Structure view shows logic structure of the scenario. It depicts the main elements of the supply chain (Customers, DCs, Factories, Suppliers) with their connections. The structure view allows you to reorganize and filter the elements on its layout, making the whole idea of the supply chain look more intelligible.
