Order Optimizer reporting to identify sourcing influencing factors
Add Order Optimizer reporting to communicate to users what factors influenced the sourcing decision for individual orders (or order lines). This may include capturing and retaining details about the selected node as compared to other potential candidate nodes that were not selected by Order Optimizer. Suggested metrics include indicators to show which model(s) influenced the ultimate sourcing decision. A possible design could include force ranking each model's separate result for that order. Example: node A (the Optimizer selected node) could be best out of candidates for shipping (ranked #1), 3rd best for Capacity, tied for 2nd for Inventory, etc. Based on how the selected node ranked for each model a user could determine which model(s) likely influenced the ultimate sourcing decision.
