Dynamic Supply Chain problem

Hello I am trying to create a Supply Chain model. This model is based on customer demand. Lets say I have 300 SC location where a customer can come in. These SC are connected to 10 DCs. and each DC is connected to of of 2 Factories. Each factory has some parts available. Each part has a ABC value described by normal dist (300, 20). Now lets say a customer comes in and demand a part with 200 or greater value the sim should find part closest to 200 (we can use bins that part be between 200 and 220) and with least wait time and send it from factory to SC. How to simulate this using Flexsim. I am new to flexsim so please can someone help me design this?

FlexSim 23.2.0

You should be able to select from a list the shortest distance based on the puller.

You may want to take a look at Anthony's supply chain model if you haven't already, or this example from Marcus.

Thank you this is great. Just that the python script is not working properly. But my requirement is anyways a bit less complex than this. I will post my model if I have any questions.
