A Preliminary Information Model for a Supply Chain Simulation
Shigeki Umeda, Charles R. McLean, Yung-Tsun T. Lee
This paper provides an overview of the information model that is under development for the simulation of a manufacturing supply chain. The supply chain simulation is being developed to validate interface specifications as part of the Intelligent Manufacturing Systems (IMS) Modeling and Simulation Environments for Design, Planning and Operation of Globally Distributed Enterprises (MISSION) project. The supply chain simulation is based largely upon the practical business operations of a U.S. power-tools manufacturing company. A high-level graphical representation of the information model is included. The information model is being used to develop neutral interface specifications that can ultimately be used to integrate distributed simulation models that are developed by other manufacturers to model their supply chains.
