I recommend to resolve this issue 1:1 via email. Once we identified the cause for this behaviour I may provide a summary here in the forum. Just get in touch with me via email.

Best regards Bernd

Thank for your replying, but i've found a error.
It was in my Source.
But there is appeared new question:
you say
all planned tours have nearly the same tour period
,
but how big this tolerance can be in the worst case?

Hello Log-Konz,

from my understanding there is no absolute or relative threshold. Imagine the following scenario:
  • 2 equal vehicles
  • 2 orders: one of them close to the depot (e.g.2 km), the other one far away (e.g.50km)
  • not additional weight or time constraints

Potential assignments:
  • both orders assigned to the same vehicle: tolerance ugly
  • each vehicle get's one order: difference between the vehicles: about factor 25...

The more orders we have and the smaller their statistical deviation is the better is the opportunity to find a solution where each vehicle has the same stress...

Got me?
