This model simulates the supply of restaurants located in the 5th arrondisement of Paris.
In the model restaurants are agents that place a given number of orders per day, this rate is represented by an updatable exponential timeout controlled by the user. The orders are processed by a supplier (in green) which will fulfil them by utilizing a fleet of vehicles.
PARAMETERS AND OUTPUTS
The user can modify the demand (orders per day), the capacity of vehicles (orders per vehicle) and the fleet size (number of vehicles); these parameters will define if the supplier delivers either by direct route or by delivery tour.
Three outputs are generated: the utilization of the fleet, the number of waiting restaurants and the distance driven each hour by the vehicles.
