In this Quick Start, we will use the "Sample Scenario" file that you can find attached to this article.
Attached to this article you will see a zip with two Excel files and a ".dispscen file" inside. These files are samples that you can import onto Scheduler. They contain an example scenario of routes needing to be optimized. You can also create your own scenarios.
- Sample Jobs. xlsx
Excel file with list of jobs to be optimized.
- Sample Master file.xlsx
Excel file with remaining information required to run the optimization: places for pickup and delivery, vehicles to be used, etc.
This file is a scenario already imported from the previous Excel files. You can either Import the the Excel files or simply Open the Scenario file.
Start Scheduler and select the File / Open Scenario menu option.
Locate the "Sample Scenario" file on your disk from the dialog and click the Open button. Once the file is loaded, two windows will open: the map window and the solutions window. You can now run this optimization scenario.
