Site States Changes

This table is used within the Network Optimization and Simulation types of experiments only.

This tables allows you to change the state (closed/open) of a site (DC or factory) or a group of sites at the beginning of the specified period of time. 

Note: The changed state of a site will not be automatically reverted to its original state at the end of the specified period. To revert the change, you have to create another period in the Periods table and create a new state change in this table that will set the site's original type of state. See the example below.
