Taking into account the location and the capacity of the suppliers, the location and volume of the demand, the location and capacity of resources, and the capacity of your transportation network, Network Design helps you solve business problems such as:
- How can I make best use of existing resources (warehouses/distribution centers)?
- Which of my resources would be more cost effective to close?
- What is the best load sizes and paths to move products across your network?
