GFA Tutorial

anyLogistix offers a number of experiments which can be used to design and optimize the supply chain structure and provide the best possible solution to meet specific requirements.

  • We know that there is certain demand for Sony Playstation consoles among our customers.
  • Our customers comprise a total of 20 locations scattered throughout the United States.
  • We are struggling to minimize the delivery costs and maintain high quality level of service at one and the same time.

This is the task that the Greenfield Analysis experiment can cope with.

In this tutorial we will learn how to set up the GFA experiment, run it and use the results that it offers.

Let us see how GFA can help us out here.

Greenfield Analysis considers the following data that we will specify during the tutorial steps:

  • Customers
  • Locations of the customers
  • Products
  • Demand for each customer and product
  • Direct distance between customers and DCs/Warehouses

GFA does not take into account roads, cities, peculiarities of geographical areas etc., that is why it may suggest putting DCs on top of a mountain or in the middle of a sea. To consider actual roads and population of the cities, use the GFA with roads experiment.
