Применение имитационных моделей для поддержки дисциплины по основам логистики и управления цепями поставок
This paper presents business simulations developed to support a course in logistics and supply chain management fundamentals for undergraduate management students. Business simulation “Warehouse management” is created using Anylogic software to enable understanding of warehouse processes and analysis of operational and financial performance metrics. The students are required to analyze and to debottleneck the warehouse processes and to increase the operational profit. The “Inventory management in a supply chain” business simulation is created with Anylogistix software. It enables learning of inventory policy optimization methods, as well as concepts of supply chain risk and resilience. The paper describes key decisions the students are required to make during simulation. The results for application of the simulations in an actual class are provided.
