Since supply chain networks are discrete event dynamic systems, Petri-net has been an effective tool for supply chain modeling. Current research on Petri-net based modeling focuses on supply chain design and integration, production planning, inventory control, logistics and distribution. This paper first gives an overview of recent research work in supply chain management involved in all the above areas based on Petri-net, and then proposes potential directions. These directions are (1… CONTINUE READING
