Finding the best stop sequence in ArcGIS Desktop

Hi all,

I have read about this task in JavaScript API.

Curious if anyone has implemented this solver in the ArcGIS Desktop by using Network Analyst?

So, we have a start point and a stop point. There are two hundred points which I want to get visited, but I do not know what is the best sequence for the route.

So what I want is to start routing from the start point, then go through all the intermediate stops and come to the end stop point. This will give me the order in which stops shall be visited. First (origin) and last (destination) stops on the list should remain fixed.

Provided that I have the road network and the points, what would be the most efficient way to implement this solver?

Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
