We discuss SISCO, the Simulator for Integrated Supply Chain Operations, a Java-based tool that simplifies supply chain simulation model development. SISCO maps supply chain descriptions stored in the XML-based Supply Chain Modeling Language (SCML) format to a set of supply chain " building blocks " developed with ThreadTec's Silk™ simulation classes.

Lot streaming is a procedure in which a production lot is split into smaller sub-lots and moved to the next processing stage so that operations at successive stages of a multistage manufacturing system can be overlapped in time. Lot streaming reduces the manufacturing lead time and thereby provides an opportunity to lower the costs of holding(More)
We describe a different approach to using XML to support the simulation modeling of supply chains. Instead of using XML to specify the simulation constructs, as most previous approaches do, we utilize XML to describe the supply chain itself. The Supply Chain Modeling Language (SCML) is a general, reusable, platform and methodology independent standard for(More)
