Order Optimizer support for release based capacity

Enhance Order Optimizer to support release based capacity in addition to the existing unit based capacity.
1. Enhancing Capacity Model to incorporate an option to manage network utilization (e.g. capacity consumed, processing plan, etc.) based on number of releases (packages)
2. Enhancing Labor Processing Model to incorporate an option to calculate processing cost based on a release vs. units
3. Revising data feed and configuration files if necessary to maintain release based capacity
4. Creating a system configuration to toggle between unit / release based capacity for a given node type (e.g. may want to set stores = release based and DCs = unit based)
5. Add an Order Optimizer Dashboard KPI to indicate average Units per Release (display next to Packages per Order)
