Indicator Constraints

This table is used within the Network Optimization experiment only. It is used to set conditions for the existing Custom Constraints, Product flows, Product storages and Production constraints by means of specifying the If and Then statements in the corresponding columns. 

Column

Description

IF

Specify the condition from the list of linear ranges defined in the Linear Ranges table.

Then

Specify the condition (from the list of linear ranges defined in the Linear Ranges table) that will be processed if the condition specified in the If column is true.

Inclusion Type

Defines the status of the current constraint. 

  • Include - if this status is set, the constraint will be included into the supply chain configuration.
  • Exclude - if set, the constraint will be excluded from the 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.

To define indicator constraint

  1. Double-click the If column cell and select the required condition (defined in the Linear Ranges table).
  2. Double-click the Then column cell and select the required condition (defined in the Linear Ranges table).

    Note: The condition of the Then statement column will be processed only if the statement from the If column is true (stays within the specified ranges).
