Customers

A customer is the final destination point of every product shipped from a DC / factory. Use this table to define the customers consuming the products of your supply chain.

Note: On deleting a customer you will also delete its demand.

Column

Description

Name

Specify the name of the new customer.

It must be a meaningful name since you will refer to it in other ALX tables.

Type

Customer type. The default customer type is “Customer”, but it can be replaced with your own customer type.

Location

Reference to a particular location defined in the Locations table.

Inclusion Type

Defines the status of the given customer. 

  • Include - include this customer into supply chain configuration.
  • Exclude - exclude this customer from supply chain configuration. If selected, the table record will be grayed out to denote the current inclusion type. The table record stays editable.
    Note: If you feel that your scenario contains too many objects marked as "Excluded" and you know that you no longer use them, you can instantly remove all such objects.

Icon

Here you define an icon that will represent this particular object only. All other objects of this type will keep their current icons.

 Initially the default icon  is set to all customers (can be changed in Edit Icons).
