In order to have good supply chain design there is a need to understand how the available tools can be used for modelling and simulating any alternative designs and strategies in supply chain systems. This unit introduces tools for modelling and simulation in order to instil appreciation of these techniques.
This subject provides the tools of modelling and simulation to develop alternative designs and select the best design or alternative with respect to the desired criteria for all the functions in the entire supply chain management.
