Abstract

The supply chain is a backbone of business operations, an indispensable part of every organization, whether small or large. Effective supply chain management (SCM) is one of the most important aspects of running a successful and profitable business, leading to maximizing customer value and achieving a sustainable competitive advantage over the competitors. In the era of omnipresent digitalization, SCM is subject to intensive ICT support that transforms supply chain operations in a profound manner. The aim of the paper is to propose a basic simulation modeling framework suitable for carrying out various analyses vis-à-vis supply chain operations, based on the utilization of continuous stock-and-flow simulations. The resulting simulation model allows one to run various scenarios, making a plethora of ‘what-if’ analyses regarding a number of adjustable input variables. As an example of how digital transformation affects traditional supply chains, it provides a solid basis for further enhancements and inclusion of additional input and output parameters for forecasting purposes.
