Flexible Manufacturing Supply Chain - Supply Chains

Flexible Manufacturing Supply Chain

In this simplistic model of a supply chain each producer makes some finished product from raw material supplied by another producer. The production (modeler as System Dynamics process) stops when amount of finished produt at the producer's warehouse reaches a certain threshold, and smilarly, raw material is ordered when its present amount (+ on order amount) falls lower than ordering threshold. A producer (and the end consumer as well) may choose between several alternative suppliers. The choice is made depending on the "supplier record" reflecting their past relathionships, the currently preferred supplier is shown by the bold link. Therefore the supply chain participants may be considered as agents with a certain level intelligence.

The model was created with AnyLogic - simulation software / inventory management
