Furthermore, 2 consultants, Maysa Alawiyeh and David Larivée, presented a conference about the combination of optimization and simulation for the definition of strategies for the supply chain.

Finally, at the industry booth, SimWell’s stand was very busy which demonstrates the visitors’ interest for simulation.
