Title:Equation-Based and Agent-Based Modeling of Supply Networks
Authors: Wanwimol Thawornchak
Date:Sep 2001
?Supply networks? is an approach to deal with the interconnections of organizations for the purpose of supplying goods and services required by consumers. Emerging ecommerce increases its important because a supply network is directly applicable to business-to-business scenarios. This project aims to investigate the dynamics of supply networks using two modeling approaches, which have different but complementary feature and compare and contrast them. The first is equation-based modeling, which is the traditional modeling for system dynamics and uses a set of equations in order to represent the system. The second is agent-based modeling, which consists of collections of programs running in a distributed fashion and exchanging messages.
