Center of Gravity

Center of Gravity Help & Support

Center of Gravity is part of SC Navigator. Its purpose to determine optimal locations for Distribution Centers in your network design.

The app finds the so-called Center of Gravity with respect to the customer and supplier locations, based on the amount of demand/supply that these locations have. Each customer/supplier that is considered in the calculations has its own demand/supply load. All these location loads pull on the Center of Gravity, until the model finds optimal location(s) to put a distribution center.

You can use Center of Gravity results as input for Network Design.
