I just came across an article in Inbound Logistics on the 6 Steps you should go through in a network model.  This article serves as a good reminder on what it takes to do a network design project.  The six steps are:

  • State your goals
  • Assemble the data
  • Clean up the data
  • Create scenarios
  • Run the models
  • Make it happen

The article is also sprinkled with good quotes and tips from experts in the area.  We could expand on each of these topics.  Just to add to the third one, “Clean up the data,” you should check out our Top 5 Tips for Cleaning Data.
