Abstract [en]

This research shows that agent based simulation models can form and effective decisionsupport system in the supply chain context. This kind of simulation based decision supportsystems is based on a simulation model, including some interacting agents and performance andrisk indicators, that has been implemented in a simulation software. The simulation model enablesthe decision-maker to iteratively set parameters, run simulations and evaluate the results. Based onthe retrieved information and knowledge the decision-maker can make decisions regarding how tohandle the real system. In essence, this type of decision support system fuses information fromdifferent sources in a synergistic manner into a situation image that provides effective support forhuman decision-making. The research shows that simulation based decision support systems canimprove the understanding of problems in the supply chain domain since they provide a holisticpicture and awareness on how decisions affect the real system.
