Use of an integrated methodology for analytical design of complex supply chains

Use of an integrated methodology for analytical design of complex supply chains In this paper an integrated modelling-based methodology previously developed by the authors is case tested to support analysis and design of complex supply chains. The methodology includes established modelling techniques namely enterprise modelling (EM), causal loop diagramming (CLD) and simulation modelling (SM). The methodology is tested in a point of purchase (POP) equipments manufacturing enterprise namely Artform International, UK. Using EM, process-based model of complex supply chain of the Artform is developed which graphically represented information, material, finance and human view points of the supply chain and its related issues. An important issue namely unavailability of components at assembly cells is selected for analysis and its detailed causal loop model is developed to understand different dynamic factors effecting components supply. SM is used to quantify impacts of components unavailability at the assembly cells. Usefulness of the methodology is presented in respect of complex supply chain design of the Artform. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Business Performance and Supply Chain Modelling Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

In this paper an integrated modelling-based methodology previously developed by the authors is case tested to support analysis and design of complex supply chains. The methodology includes established modelling techniques namely enterprise modelling (EM), causal loop diagramming (CLD) and simulation modelling (SM). The methodology is tested in a point of purchase (POP) equipments manufacturing enterprise namely Artform International, UK. Using EM, process-based model of complex supply chain of the Artform is developed which graphically represented information, material, finance and human view points of the supply chain and its related issues. An important issue namely unavailability of components at assembly cells is selected for analysis and its detailed causal loop model is developed to understand different dynamic factors effecting components supply. SM is used to quantify impacts of components unavailability at the assembly cells. Usefulness of the methodology is presented in respect of complex supply chain design of the Artform.
