Hi there,

I have what seems like a relatively simple problem but there's a catch that I can't seem to figure out a workaround with Network Analyst. Each road segment is coded with a maximum Tons/hr value. If I maximize on this, It would generate the proper route that adds up all the segments of the route to give me the maximum tons/hr. All roads are classified as either a 63.5 tons, 55.5 ton or 43.5 ton road. If the route that is generated has any segments that would be 43.5 tons, then the whole route would need to be classified as a 43.5 ton road.

It's a bit confusing for me to try and maximize on tons/hr keeping in mind that if any of the segments have a lower ton rating, then all the segments would get tagged as 43.5 and the max ton/hr value would be much less.

Hopefully i've explained this enough for someone to try and understand. Would greatly appreciate any feedback or ideas on this problem.

Thanks,

Nick

Based on your description, I was not able to understan what you are trying to achieve.

Perhaps you can elaborate...
