Add Order Optimizer tie breaker based on total transit time
Add an Order Optimizer tie breaker that considers total transit to customer time. If one or more candidate nodes are tied based on the current combination of model factors / weights and SLA restrictions, Order Optimizer should attempt to break the tie by applying a penalty to the node (or nodes) that will arrive at the customer later. This tie breaker would be used to shift the Optimizer result towards the node (or nodes) that get the order to the customer faster when all other factors are equal. This penalty should be configurable and maintainable at the network level in the UI similar to other Order Optimizer model configurations. Entering a penalty of zero would disable this tie breaker. Entering a non-zero value would apply that penalty only when one or more nodes was tied after all other factors were considered.
