Center of Gravity Navigator¶
Center of Gravity Navigator 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 Navigator results as input for Network Design Navigator.
