W3C - The Supply Index

Topics: General: W3C - The Supply Index

The supply index is not a hot item in the game and nearly never discussed.
however, if neglected and allowed to decline, it can be a major obstacle to the economy.

The supply index will decline if the stock of several products in the country turns negative.

The supply index is a measure of the availability of materials the country needs.
If many are short, the supply index will decline.

For example: this can be the case if there are shortages of ammunition.
some players think they can reduce the cost of maintaining the army by cancelling the automatic purchasing of ammunition needed for the army, causing the stock of ammunition items turn negative and tank the supply index.

What happens if the supply index declines:

A low supply index will drag the welfare index down.

The welfare index is a combination of several indexes, including the supply index.

The welfare index is not an average.
it depends on the lowest of several indexes. each one of these indexes can drag the welfare index very low.

a low welfare index directly affects the production levels in all corporations, reducing productivity, reducing production and can destroy the economy.
you must keep you population happy. keep the welfare index high.

In a market with many shortages, check the availability of products in your country, it is in the trading menu, and purchase products that are in the red. even if it forces you to purchase them in immediate mode.

We see many countries with a supply index under 100.

this is damaging to the economy and quite easy to resolve.

If your supply index is low, please check the trade menu.
you will see a list of products on order and not delivered.

Some of the orders may be long outstanding and the country might be short, causing the supply index to decline.

More on this as we see damage to countries

The welfare index is computed partially as the minimum of several indexes, among them the supply index.

there is some tolerance.

The dependence is on the supply index + 40.

with several products short in the country, the supply index can be reduced to 80 and the welfare index can reach 80+40 =120 which is OK.
Not great.

if the supply index goes to 60, the welfare index will never reach more than 100.
This will result in a drop of productivity.
Let alone, what happens if the index drops to 40.

There are very severe shortages in many products on the market and purchasing can be delayed, causing a drop in the supply index.

Hi Andy I just took a few countries on fb. One of them I just took has 2 game months to fix its supply issue. Shouldn't it restart once i take ownership? I need more then 2 months to fix the issue. Its bad like -12T supplies. But its worth fixing.

Problems with supplies depend on the markets.
There are shortages and some of your orders are probably not delivered.

If you klick on trade in the top menu, you will see the list of orders that are not delivered yet.

Your purchasing strategy can be updated to offer more for products and get priority.

you can also fix it directly with immediate orders but these are more expensive.

The reason we started this discussion is the large shortages on the market and we see that many orders are not delivered or take much longer to deliver.

I appreciate these posts you've made.

To be honest I wasn't even aware of the suply index until I started reading this thread.

Most times, the supply index is at 100 and nobody looks into it.

there are now severe shortages and in many countries there are orders that remain open and there are shortages.

In this situation, the supply index is suddenly very important.
