Results of the GFA Experiment

Based on the data provided in the scenario tables, the GFA results offer:

  • Locations for the distribution centers/warehouses.
  • Sourcing policies – where customers buy products.

Since GFA does not take into account roads, cities, means of transportation, etc., it may suggest putting DCs on top of a mountain or in the middle of a sea. If you want the experiment to consider roads, run the GFA with roads experiment.

The results are available in the dashboard below the experiment's view in the form of statistics, distributed through the pages on the left (each page refers to a certain type of statistics). If required, you can rename, remove a page, or export the content of the page's statistics to MS Excel file:

  • Product Flows — shows detailed statistics on the flows of the supply chain within the specified period of time.
  • New Site Locations — shows information on all the new sites created by the experiment.
  • Distance Coverage by Demand — shows detailed statistics on the distance to cover to satisfy a certain percentage of the demand.
  • Demand Coverage by Distance — shows detailed statistics on the demand to satisfy within a certain distance.
