Micro-simulation Model Supporting the Management of an Interregional Logistic Platform

This paper proposes a stochastic, dynamic discrete-event micro-simulation model to analyse the operation of a logistic platform in order to determine its performance in different system configurations by using appropriate efficiency indicators. The issues connected to the management and optimization of operational functions are studied at a global level in order to obtain a technical/economic analysis through aggregate evaluations, which provide information useful to tactical/strategic planning. The model implementation consists of four sequential steps: survey and statistical analysis, specification, calibration, and validation model. The micro-simulation model has been implemented by using Witness software. This paper proposes an application of the micro-simulation model on the Kuehne+Nagel logistic platform in order to analyse its operativity.
