Simulation of supply chain behaviour and performance in an uncertain environment

  title={Simulation of supply chain behaviour and performance in an uncertain environment},
  author={Dobrila Petrovic},
This paper describes a special purpose simulation tool, SCSIM, developed for analysing supply chain (SC) behaviour and performance in the presence of uncertainty. SCSIM treats a SC which includes a rawmaterial inventory, a number of in-process inventories, an end-product inventory and production facilities between them, linked in a series. Main sources of uncertainty inherent in the serial SC and its environment are identi"ed, including customer demand, external supply of raw material and lead… CONTINUE READING
