Simulation-based design of large-scale intermodal supply chain networks

Simulacijski prizak siroke mreze intermodalnog lanca dobave

For the purpose of design and management of supply chain systems of heavy industries, such as that of automobiles, a simulation-based model is presented by this study. The main components and practical deployment of the model are described herein, and specific-purpose software is utilized. In order to effectively distribute cars to many European countries, a large-scale, intermodal logistics network is used. The transport system encompasses a combination of modes, such as rail wagon, truck and ship, and it includes a set of alternative transit routes. The aim is to discover the most effective combinations of transport routes and modes in terms of the total cost (of storage and transport), and subject to a given set of constraints (physical, capacity, financial budget, and delivery time). The resulting network configuration as derived from this study delivers the required level of revenues and profit, based on car sales, while adhering to the given set of constraints.
