Data-Driven Supply Chain Model Built with the Arena Simulation Software

Using the Arena discrete-event simulation software, it is easy to build a supply chain simulation model where trucks deliver material from 5 supplier sites to 100 different customer locations. Data-driven models are a very powerful type of simulation models, which rely on data to drive the actions taking place. The models only requires 17 modules of flowchart logic and creating animation is not mandatory.  SimWell has created a video to further explain how to build such a model, using the following data driven tools:

  • sets of stations
  • sets of queues
  • arrayed variables for input data
