Operation Management πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»

Operation Management, also known as the Route Planning module, enables the creation of fixed collection schedules (static schedules) and dynamic collection schedules. In this guide, we’ll go through how to create route schemes and routes on the WasteHero Platform.

Prerequisites

Before planning route schemes or routes, you’ll need to have your Operation Management project settings configured. If you’re yet to create those settings, you can read more in this article.


Route Schemes

In order to create a route, it is important that you first create a route scheme.

In the main menu, go to Operation Management > Route Schemes

Click on + Create in the upper right-hand corner.

You'll now fill out the information required to create a route scheme. Find guidance in the table below:

*asterisks indicate required fields

LabelDescription
Collection Method*Here you have to choose from one of the following 3 collection methods: Static is used for containers that have a fixed collection interval. Semi-dynamic is used for containers with sensors in them that need to be collected when they reach a certain capacity or when their interval is met, e.g. the container needs to be collected every 14 days. Fully Dynamic is used for containers that have sensors and only need to be collected when a certain capacity is met.
Vehicle Trailer Capacity Mode*Here you can choose whether the vehicle trailer should use the normal settings, switch settings or industry settings.
Project*Select which project the route scheme should be created for.
Name*Give your route scheme a meaningful name.
Objective*Here you can determine how the route scheme should optimize your routes. You have the option to minimize, maximize and balance a number of parameters.
Waste fractions fill levels*If you are using semi-dynamic or dynamic you will need to fill in the waste fractions fill levels. Here you must first select a waste fraction and then in what percentage range this fraction is to be collected. You have to do this for all waste fractions that are linked to the route scheme you are creating.
Vehicles*Here you can add the vehicles that will be used for your route scheme.
NavigationUnder Navigation, there are a number of options that you can tick. These settings determine what changes drivers can make via the navigation app.
OthersUnder Others, you have the option to set rules for the routes when they use your route scheme.


Click Save Changes in the top left corner.

Congratulations, you have now created your first route scheme! πŸŽ‰


Routes

In the main menu, go to Operation Management > Routes.

Click + Create in the upper right-hand corner. A popup window will appear, where you'll need to add the following information:

LabelDescription
Project*Specify which project the route should be created for.
Date*Specify which date the route will run.
Route Scheme*Specify which route scheme will be used for the route.
Vehicle*Specify which vehicle will drive the route.
Driver*Specify which driver will drive the route.
Vehicle Trailer*Specify which trailer will be used on the route.


Click Save to save your changes.

Congratulations, you have just created your first route! πŸŽ‰

After pressing save, a new screen will appear where you have the option to add stops to the route. You can do this by clicking Add stops in the top left corner. You will now be able to check the containers that should be on the route and finally, press Submit in the bottom right corner.

You can also hover over actions where you can start, optimize, reset and delete the route again.


Congratulations - you are now a master in using the Operation Management Module! πŸŽ‰
