Patterns for modeling operational control of discrete event logistics systems (DELS)

Abstract

Designing smart operational control systems for Discrete Event Logistics Systems (DELS) requires a standard description of control behaviors executed at the operational management level of DELS control. In this paper, we propose a set of patterns for modeling the operational control mechanisms, organized by classes of control questions that all DELS must be able to answer. The pattern for each control question includes an analysis-agnostic functional definition of the control problem for that question, as well as a mapping of the decision variable in that problem to a particular function and execution mechanism in the base system.
