Flows

The Flows page shows the optimal flows through the network.

The upper map and table are for the currently active network (the one just solved). The lower map and table are for display of an optional Scenario.

The flows and nodes shown on the maps can be filtered using the widgets on the right side of the page.

Legend

Nodes are the geographic locations represented on the map.

Node Types are usually divided into Suppliers, Customers, and categories of Resources. Only nodes of the selected types will be displayed on the maps.

Show Transportation Type

Use the checkboxes to filter by Transport Type. Only flows of the selected types will be displayed on the map.

  • Primary flows go from Suppliers, and represent “first mile” flows.
  • Secondary flows go to Customers, and represent “last mile” flows.
  • Inter-Resource flows go between Resources (Distribution Centers, Warehouses, etc.).
  • Direct flows go directly from a Supplier to a Customer.

You can view more details about Customer flows on the Customers page.

Show Product

Use the checkboxes to filter by Product. Only flows for the selected products will be displayed on the map.
