The dataset contains 1500 problem instances of a multilayered complex network. The physical layer of each instance is a grid-type road network that represents an urban environment. The logical layer represents one of three supply chain network archetypes. Of the 1500 instances, 500 represent a single hub, 500 a double hub, and 500 a fully connected supply chain network. Each instance is a self-contained Extensible Markup Language (XML) file that contains the nodes and edges of the physical network; the nodes and edges of the logical supply chain network; the associations linking each logical node to a physical node; and the shortest path sets connecting the logical nodes on the physical network.
