Goal

Network Optimization: Narrowing the countries / locations from where to distribute goods

Usage

Thickness & Color of Lines show volume from distribution location into European Countries. Choose FROM location (in GLX Connectors Tab) to simulate various distribution center locations. The smaller the overall area covered (e.g. compare to Netherlands) the approximately cheaper the solution.

Hint: Use in One Way or Dual Sync Mode; Also replace the line connectors to road connectors to get a picture of the road network

Goal

Supply Chain Risk Management and Desaster Recovery - determine quickly which of your products & suppliers are affected and whom to contact

Usage

Map manufacturing locations that are potentially exposed to natural desasters. Color code different product types in different colors (this example resembles auto parts). Add contact information in the description for fast access in desaster situations. Map desaster or risk zones. You directly see which manufacturing locations and product types are affected and whom to contact to evaluate and mitigate the situation.

Hint: Use show: Road Connectors between sites as "TRUE" to develop mitigation plans
