Assess when and where simulation is needed
Investigate the ability of simulation to solve logistics problems
Explore the simulation steps that can be applied to simulate systems
Develop an understanding of the system concept and its components
Explore different types of system elements
Identify ways of using such elements to represent the system being modelled
On this course, you will be shown how current operations work within a business supply chain and will explore affordable scenarios for further improvements.
You will explore the benefits of logistics simulation along with limitation and other modelling steps. You will also gain the opportunity to learn how to better deal with uncertainty and reduce future business risks.
