How it Works
Parameters & Available Resources
VRP, when solving the problem, takes into account a number of parameters that contribute to the configuration of the route. Initiate the system and for each route, only enter orders, from an excel file
Calculate the Solution using advanced ESRI algorithms that minimize the routing cost
View the results in interactive maps and excel like tables with grouping, sorting and filtering options
Calculate alternative scenarios by modifying the parameter values within the application GUI or by importing new excel files for order, vehicles and / or distribution centers

Parameters & Available Resources
VRP, when solving the problem, takes into account a number of parameters that contribute to the route planning.
Indicatively, these parameters may be:
- Fleet characteristics:
- Vehicles (number, capacity, maximum allowed speed, fuel type, operating costs, starting position, arrival location)
- Drivers (number, availability, skills, cost, overtime costs, driving time)
- Orders (number, delivery times)
- Distribution centers (number, capacity, types of goods, hours of operation)
- Road network (categories, speeds, directions, U-turns)
The complexity of the problem and the resolution time depend on the number of parameters. These parameters are calibrated by each company and are taken into account when solving the problem.
When initializing the system, the solution parameters are set and the depot and vehicle data is imported from excel files. From this point on, for calculating routes, all you need is to import your order data order data from excel files.
Route calculation is done using ArcGIS Enterprise Server’s Network Analyst module of ESRI.
Network Analyst Routing Software is based on the well-known Dijkstra Algorithm for finding shorter paths between nodes in a graph.
This algorithm respects user settings such as one-way constraints, U-turn constraints, barriers and road constraints while minimizing the cost of routes based on user-defined parameters.
View the results of the solution (vehicles and orders) in any way you want in terms of sorting, grouping and filtering, easily and quickly from excel like tables displayed on the application screen. See the statistics for each vehicle in the corresponding aggregated column.
View the filtering results on the map or select a route from the map and see it in the table view.
Export the results to excel files.
Data can lead either to a successful or unsuccessful solution to the problem.
Successful Solution means servicing all orders based on input data:
- assignment of vehicles with routes and drivers with vehicles
- route instructions (on map and in the form of descriptive instructions)
- route cost (cost, time and distance)
- the solution that exhausts all available resources, appears and shows the above results
- displays orders that are not served
In any case, the user can implement alternative scenarios by changing the parameters and constraints. In the case of unsuccessful solution, the user, based on the results, may relax the constraints or increase the resources to serve all orders. Or he can choose the proposed solution and transfer non-served deliveries to another route.
