Relationship between Service Times and Delivery Quantities

Discussion created by ewygonik on Sep 15, 2010
I am trying to understand how service times are utilized within Network Analyst for Vehicle Routing Problems, especially in relationship to delivery quantities.

When a service time is input, is it multiplied by the value under "Delivery Quantity"? In other words, is service time treated as a fixed or variable time?

In the example below, what is the total service time I should expect for Order 2: 30 or 60 sec?

Order #............Service Time.........Delivery Quantity........Total Service Time
1.....................30 sec.........................1.....................30 sec
2.....................30 sec.........................2.....................60 sec or 30 sec?


Thanks,
Erica
