When planning is already completed you may receive some last-minute orders which you want to insert into your routes with minimal changes:
There is a convenient way to do that in Maxoptra. Right-click on the order which you want to insert into your routes and select "Suggest allocations":
Maxoptra will calculate the impact of adding the selected order into each route and give you a prioritized list of options:
The Violations column will indicate if adding the selected order to this route causes a constraint violation, for example, taking the vehicle over its weight capacity or the driver over the driving hours limit:
The Cost column shows the cost of adding the selected order to this route:
The table is automatically sorted on Violations column first showing options with no violations at the top and the Cost column second showing the cheapest option at the top.
When you have found the best option you can simply click "Allocate"
and the selected order will be added to the chosen route:
You can even do that for multiple orders at once. Hold down the Ctrl key and select multiple orders by clicking on each order on the map or in the list of Unplanned orders or by drawing a rectangular selection on the map:
Then right-click any of the orders and select "Suggest allocations":
The orders will be evaluated together and inserted together into the same route:
