00:03Hello, my name is Karl Terrey.
00:05And I am a product manager at Esri in Redlands, California.
00:08I'd like to welcome you to this training seminar on the ArcLogistics tutorial.
00:13It's going to cover the one topic today, which is the tutorial.
00:17The topic is a few slides and be followed by a software demonstration on the tutorial itself.
00:23So let's look at the tutorial -- what is the tutorial?
00:27Well, essentially, it's a quick and easy way to start...
00:29...using, learning, and practicing how to use ArcLogistics.
00:34It's accessed from the Getting Started action panel...
00:36...on the Home tab of ArcLogistics
00:38This is typically where the application opens when you start it.
00:43The tutorial is a document instead of steps that guide you through some of the main...
00:46...features of ArcLogistics.
00:48But please remember that it's not an in-depth course in ArcLogistics.
00:54So let's now have a look at the tutorial and what it looks like in ArcLogistics.
00:59ArcLogistics typically opens to the homepage on the Getting Started tab.
01:06What I want to do first, if I click on the Workflow tutorial project...
01:11...it opens up the help file and takes you straight to the ArcLogistics tutorial.
01:17If you select Exercise 1, it will step you through the tutorial itself.
01:23And I'll close this and we'll get into the tutorial.
01:27First, I'm going to select the Projects action panel on the left side.
01:31And I'll just make sure I have the tutorial selected.
01:34I'll now select the Setup tab.
01:38The first thing we notice in ArcLogistics is that we already have...
01:41...a warehouse setup, one of our locations called, "NYC Warehouse."
01:47If I select that, you'll see it highlighted in the Map view.
01:50What I want to do now though is, is at another location to ArcLogistics...
01:54...which will be my repair shop, so I'll select the area above NYC Warehouse...
02:01...and I'll type in, "Repair Shop."
02:04I'll type in the address of 3769 10th Ave., New York, New York.
02:17And now I'll select ENTER, because I'm not completely sure what the zip code is.
02:22ArcLogistics opened up the Did you mean window because it couldn't completely...
02:25...geocode that location and is offering us four candidate locations.
02:31I'm going to move down to the Did you mean window and I'll select the third location...
02:35...down and ArcLogistics Map view zooms to that location.
02:39I know that's incorrect, so I'll go back to the top address...
02:42...the one at 3769 10th Ave., New York, New York, 10034, and I'll select that location.
02:51I'm happy with that; I can see it on the map.
02:54So now I'll move down; I'll select OK, and ArcLogistics has accepted that location.
03:01What I want to do now though is look at the vehicles, so I'll move across to the...
03:04...Vehicles action panel on the left and I'll click Vehicles.
03:07And you can see it's already populated with nine vehicles here.
03:11What I want to do, though, is add an additional vehicle.
03:15So I'll select the area above Truck-009 and I'll create a truck called, "Truck-010."
03:24I'm going to change the Weight capacity to 10,000 pounds...
03:29...the volume to 200 cubic feet.
03:33And my Fuel Economy to 22 miles per gallon.
03:37And I'll select Fuel Type of Gas.
03:40It's worth noting at this point that if we look at Truck-001...
03:48...we have a fixed cost of $100 here, so this vehicle is going to be...
03:51...a little more expensive to operate than some of the other vehicles.
03:56Let's now look at the drivers.
03:59So we select the Drivers action panel on the left and you can see we have nine drivers...
04:03...set up so what we want to do now is create an additional driver.
04:07Again, we'll select the area just below Driver Name and we'll create a new driver...
04:13...and we'll type in "C. Huddock."
04:19And we'll keep the Per Hour Salary the same, the overtime salary is the same.
04:24But let's tab across to the Time Before Overtime and we'll make that 8.5.
04:29So this driver costs the same as all the other drivers.
04:35What we need to do now is to look at our Default routes.
04:39So we'll select Default Routes action panel...
04:41...and you can see we have nine Default Routes already set up.
04:45So let's create an additional Default Route called NY-010.
04:52I'm going to add my Truck-010 as the vehicle for that route.
04:57We'll add our new driver, C. Huddock.
05:00And let's now look at the other variables for this vehicle.
05:04We have the vehicle starting between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m.
05:08They get a 30-minute lunch break.
05:10And we'll make that between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
05:17We'll have this vehicle start at the warehouse.
05:20And they're there for 20 minutes before they leave the warehouse.
05:24They'll end at our NYC Warehouse as well.
05:30And we have 45 minutes at the end of the day as well...
05:32...where they're accruing that 45 minutes of cost before they're stopped being paid.
05:39And we have a maximum of orders -- we'll set this at 20...
05:41...so that it conforms to the rest of the default routes.
05:47We should now be ready to create some routes.
05:49We have our locations, vehicles, drivers, and default routes set up.
05:53So what I want to do now is select the Schedule tab and we'll import some orders.
06:00We'll select today's date, which is Aug. 27.
06:04The first thing I'm going to do for today's date is to close the views except for the routes.
06:09So I'm going to close the Map view, the Orders view, and the Time view...
06:14...just so I can show you how those are opened and closed.
06:17Also, we want to change one of the properties for Route NY-010...
06:20...so that it's finishing at the repair shop for the day.
06:23So I'll scroll across to the right-hand side...
06:25...I'll select the End Location, and I'll select Repair Shop.
06:30So now we have 10 routes set up for the day...
06:32...one of which is going to end its day at the repair shop.
06:37I can move back over to the Views panel.
06:39And I can select Orders to show the orders.
06:43We can open up our Map view and we'll open up our Time view.
06:49Now, I want to rearrange how these look, so I'm going to take the map...
06:53...I'll left-click it and I'll drag it over to the left-hand side and I'll drop it on this arrow.
07:02Now, I want the Time view.
07:06And I want to drag that down to the bottom...
07:08...so I click it and drag and I'll drop it on the bottom arrow.
07:13I'll lower that by dragging it down.
07:17Now I've got the screen fashioned the way that I want to work with it.
07:21What I want to do first is import a set of orders, so I'll select Import Orders...
07:30...now I have to browse to where my order file is.
07:41I found the order file for my orders.
07:43It's an Excel spreadsheet, so I'll select Open.
07:47I'll select the table, which is my orders.
07:51I will now validate the Source Field names...
07:54...to the field names that are allowed in ArcLogistics.
07:57So I can scroll down this and make sure that they are all correct.
08:03It's worth note that, at the bottom of the screen, we have an Import Preview...
08:06...which shows the first two rows of the data that's going to be imported.
08:10And we can scroll across this...
08:13...again to verify that the information coming in is what we're expecting.
08:19And now I select OK.
08:24And ArcLogistics is now importing and geocoding...
08:27...all of the orders, and in this case, we have about 100 of them.
08:35We can see in the Map view that we have several black circles...
08:40...some of them have numbers inside them.
08:41These represent the orders that are in close proximity to that location.
08:46I can zoom in on the map; I can hold my SHIFT key down...
08:50...left-click the mouse, drag a box around some of these.
08:53And you'll see that, as the map zooms in, they spread out.
08:57We can do that again and we can see the exact location of them.
09:02I'll zoom back out now using my scroll wheel...
09:07...so that we can see the full extent of where our orders are for the day.
09:13What I want to do now is build the routes.
09:15So move across to the Tasks and I'll select Build Routes.
09:37Okay, we can see now that we have a solution.
09:39ArcLogistics has come back and given us...
09:42...a set of routes for the day.
09:44I'm going to expand the Time view...
09:45...so we can see, in more detail, what those routes look like.
09:53What I want to do now for the purpose of the tutorial is to do some manual editing...
09:57...of the routes before we print up any of the route manifests and reports.
10:03There are several ways we can edit some of the routes.
10:06What I'm going to do, initially, I'm going to select one of these stops...
10:09...the first stop on route NY-010 and I'm going to manually...
10:12...drag that and drop it onto route NY-009.
10:22And we can see now in the Time view that route NY-009 has one stop on it.
10:27Let's do that again -- I'll select another order and I'll drag that onto route NY-009.
10:47And we can see now that order is placed on route NY-009.
10:50What I want to do now is close...
10:52...the Orders panel, because there's no unassigned orders left for the day.
10:58What I'm going to do now is expand route NY-009 in the Routes view...
11:02...so I can see detailed information of that route.
11:05First, I'll lower the Time view a little bit and I'll expand route NY-009.
11:10As I scroll down, we can see the sequence of stops for route NY-009.
11:14What I want to do is manually drag Auto Shop 1, which is the second stop for the day...
11:19...and I want to put that as the first stop.
11:22So I'm just dragging it up within the view...
11:26...and dropping it just above the first sequence stop.
11:35And let's now examine what that looks like in the Routes view.
11:38We can see Auto Shop 1 is now in Sequence 1 within that route.
11:43What I want to do now is open up the Versions window.
11:47So I'll select Versions.
11:50And if we look in the Versions window, we can see Build Routes with the date.
11:55And we have, above that, the current version.
11:58Build Routes was the initial solution that we created.
12:03The current version represents the version after we've done some of that editing.
12:07So you'll see that we have a different cost and different distances there.
12:11The current version is always the one that the reports, and any exports, are printed from.
12:17So what I'll do is select Build Routes...
12:23...and I'm going to commit that to the current version.
12:27I've committed the Build Routes now...
12:28...to the current version because I preferred that version of the routes.
12:35I'll now select Deployment and I'll print some reports.
12:40I want to print reports for route NY-001.
12:44I want the Driver Report and an Overview Map.
12:47So I'll select those followed by Build Reports.
12:53Select the report and now select Preview.
12:59And the first page of the report shows me an overview map plus a list of stops.
13:06And the second and third pages show me manifest information of all the stops.
13:13So to review, the tutorial is a quick and easy way to explore ArcLogistics.
13:18But please remember it is an overview only of the application.
13:22For more information on ArcLogistics, please see the ArcLogistics Help...
13:26...the training website, the ArcLogistics Resource Center...
13:30...and also the ArcLogistics product page.
13:33This presentation is just one in a series of training seminars on ArcLogistics.
13:37And I would encourage you to watch the other seminars...
13:40...to learn more about the ArcLogistics product.
13:42On behalf of Esri, and the ArcLogistics team, I would like to thank you.
