Transport Optimization Demo
Transport Optimization Site Map

This page lists all menu items and provides brief instructions for operating the site. Typically you will want to go to the "Optimization" page first and click "Optimize".

  • Demo Home will return you to the Demo's Home Page.
  • Optimization will take you to the optimization page where you can perform an optimization by clicking the Optimize button. If you then click on the map, information about the nearest city will appear in a pop-up.
    • Optimize will take you to the "Optimization" page and perform an Optimization (rather than having to also click the "Optimize" button).
  • Input Data will take you to the Inputs page where you may change the input values to the optimizer. [Make sure to click the "Commit" button after any changes.] New outputs will be generated with the next "Optimize" based on your inputs. (Try setting a supplier's supply value to '0' and note how the output map changes). From here you may also save the Input XML File to your computer, and upload a previously-saved Input File. [Currently, there are no facilites for added or deleting Suppliers or Consumers.]
