How can I utilize the Vehicle Routing Problem to determine the many number of buses for each origin(add multiple depot name to route ) and how can I check the capacity of these buses by identifying the number of people in each order?

Hello,

I'm not quite following your questions. We allow just one depot name for the starting depot on a route. If you are not sure how many routes should start from each depot you can start more then enough from each depot and the solver will only start the number of routes from each depot that is needed.

 

As for the capacity of the buses, for each route you can indicate how many people can be on the bus by using the capacity fields and indicate the number of people at the stops with the quantity fields. The DepotVisits will then give a summary of the quantity that were assigned to the route.

 

If this does not answer your questions can you explain more about what you are trying to do and where you are running into problems.
