Simulation-based analysis of demand variability in supply chain

Demand variability is one of the key issues in the management of today supply chains. This article examines problem of uncertainty in the supply chains caused by demand variability. Computer simulation is proposed to model the supply chain of the fertiliser industry in conditions of uncertainty. The aim of the investigations is twofold: firstly, to understand some of the underlying structures and factors which are generated from demand uncertainty and have impact on fluctuations through the supply chain; secondly to present the efficiency of using simulation modelling of the complex system, like supply chain, with uncertain environments.
