Max intransit varying with number of suppliers
« on: May 07, 2017, 01:02:37 PM »
Running a map with JIT=1, max-intransit-perc=500
When adding a connection between two factories, the max intransit value of the incoming good is increased.
I would expect max intransit tonly to be dependent on production capacity and not of the number of suppliers.

What is the idea/thought behind this behaviour ?

I think the distance to the supplier(s) is a factor. The longer away the supplier, the more goods can be in-transit. This is an attempt to combat the burst cycle that JIT1 is known for.

OK, didn't think about that.
Thanks
