Load Building constraint can be added to restrict the use of any warehouse for single/group of product/s during single/group of period/s if the quantity for that product/product group is below specific value.
To add Load Building Constraint, click on the Load Building constraint under constraint drop down in Data Dashboard. Then click on the add Load Building constraint to add individual data or bulk data in respective tabs.
|Period group from the period group table to be selected/added
|Select/Add a Warehouse group from the warehouse group table.
|Select/Add a Product group from the product group table.
|Add the minimum quantity threshold. If the volume of the selected product group at the chosen warehouse group increases above this minimum quantity during the selected period group, then the warehouse will be utilized.
|1 or 0 can be assigned for active or inactive status of constraint.
|Any remarks/comments can be added in this column.
The above constraint added will restrict the fulfilment from warehouse_1 if the quantity is less than 100 units for product_1 during period_1. This constraint can be used when the warehouse can be activated only upon reaching a specific volume for particular products.
This constraint operates at the period level, resulting in distinct equations for each period within the selected period group. Meanwhile, for the warehouse and product group, it aggregates all warehouses and products within the respective warehouse and product group.
