This simulation demonstrates how adding a local distributor to a supply chain affects delivery and capital costs. The first variant of the supply chain consists of a port which receives shipments and clients located in various cities in West Virginia.
To switch between which variant is being displayed in the 3D Viewer, change the
local_distributor property in globals.json.
Costs are incurred for renting warehouse space and delivering stock. The Plots tab shows cost breakdowns and comparisons for both variants of the supply chain. The alternative arrangements of the supply chain are both being run in the background, even though only one is displayed in the 3D Viewer.
