Supply Chain Simulation and Modeling with Theory of Control

Mohammadreza Parsanejad, Ebrahim Teimoury, and Abozar Parsanejad
Abstract—Control theory is one of the approaches to model and measure the performance of a supply chain. In this approach there are two fundamental model Fixed and Variable Inventory and Order Based Production and Control Systems which is abbreviated as IOBPCS and VIOBPCS respectively. These two models are single stage single product systems that have a market demand as input and production unit which are controlled by three controllers. In this paper we aim to simulate and analyse these two models and show that VIOBPCS are a faster system than other one but more expensive, therefore it is appropriate for a market with rapid changes. While IOBPCS, although is not highly flexible to follow demand pattern but its cost is less than of VIOBPCS.

Index Terms—Supply chain modeling, control theory, simulation, production, inventory.
