Supply chains that produce and distribute computer servers are globally dispersed and have a high degree of uncertainty. To excel at servicing customers, a supplier must be highly skilled in matching the assets in the system with customer demand. Discrete event simulation has been proven valuable for system state estimation of supply chains. However,(More)

Whether the system is a production line, an operating room or an emergency-response system, simulation can be used to study and compare alternative designs or to troubleshoot existing systems. With simulation models, we can(More)
