Input: warehouse groups, and supply costs per warehouse-customer
Semicolon or tab separated; you can copy data from MS Excel into the text area.
- The top row specifies the warehouse group (a,b,c,d,e,f, g or j). Warehouses within the same group should sit next to each other: "a a b b c" is valid input, "c b c a b" is not.
- Next rows contain supply cost for each warehouse-customer-combination. In the example, supplying the 3rd customer Cust_0003 from the 2nd warehouse WH_02 costs 17.
- The demo data contains 40 warehouses and 40 customers. There are 20 warehouses in group a, 15 in group b, and 5 in group c. Of course, you can adjust this input data.
Input: number of warehouses to open, per warehouse group
