Current Scenario: On Day 1, people will make a list of products that need delivery. This list will contain the Recipients demographics (name, address, and product to be delivered), and Estimated Stop Time. On Day 2, the list is pushed to Mappoint 2004, Stops are added and a Route is Optimized, then Directions are given. :End of Scenario
I am using VB6 and have embedded the Mappoint Control in a form, but I may consider making it an Add-In for Mappoint if it seems easier to use.
My problem is that I have more than one driver that will be delivering on this day, is there a way to have more than one route per map so I can balance the diliveries between the two drivers? If not, I can just get the total number of stops divide it in half and delete the last half of stops, then create the first map, then create a second map using the same scenario, but delete the first half of stops.
I have also considered using territories, but the Stops we would add are not very consistant and I would like to split all deliveries in half so each driver will have the same number of stops. This will be the first idea, as i become more familiar with it, i would rather like to split up routes based on the time spent on each route equal.
