In SCM Globe, supply chains are created by comginations of the four supply chain entities – Products, Facilities, Vehicles, Routes. So to build a model of any supply chain involves defining the characteristics of these four entities and then combining them to create supply chain you are modeling.
This happens in eight steps. The screenshots below illustrate these steps.
Where is the 8th step?
That is the step where you see what went wrong and you go back to fix it. You make changes as needed to one or more of the four entities – products, facilities, vehicles, routes. Then you run the simulation again to see what happens, and you keep simulating and making changes until you get your supply chain to run for 30 days.
