Analysis Options for Stops

When calculating a route, there are some additional options regarding the stops that can be taken into account, which have influence on the result. See this chapter for details about the following Analysis Options for Stops in WebOffice 10.9 SP1:

 

Reorder Stops to Find Optimal Route

A route passes through the stops in the defined order by default. But the route may be shortened by finding the optimum order with the Network Analyst. In case you activate this option, the route analysis will not work with the shortest route but on the basis of the traveling salesman problem (optimized circular trip).
