    Hi Vasilis

    i had the same question few months ago, and the answer is yes the Loz-size parameters aren´t available for external soruces of supply

    so if you want to use the lot size, you can create a Supplier, create the transportation lane and the most important thing you have to use Dicretization on the parameters of the Optimizer.

    I hope this can help you

    Best Regars

    Hi Jorge,

    Thank you very much for your answer. Actually, I was wandering what the word "external source of supply" means.

    For me, since suppliers are affronted as locations in the system, and locations can have transportation MINLOTSIZE, it doesn't make sense that the "external source of supply"=suppliers.

    Thank you once again for your time

    Best regards
