The use of system dynamics modeling in supply chain management has only recently re-emerged after a lengthy slack period. Current research on system dynamics modelling in supply chain management focuses on inventory decision and policy development, time compression, demand amplification, supply chain design and integration, and international supply chain management. The paper first gives an overview of recent research work in these areas, followed by a discussion of research issues that have… Expand
