27th EUROPEAN Conference on Modelling and Simulation


ECMS 2013

May 27th - 30th, 2013


Discrete Event Modelling and Simulation in Logistics, Transport and Supply Chain Management (LT)


The aim of the LT track is to offer researchers and practitioners, who are active in the field of basic and applied research on modelling and simulation of logistics and transport systems as well as supply chains, the opportunity to present, discuss and learn about the latest achievements in this area. Topics covered include but are not limited to:

Modelling and Simulation in Logistics

  • Production and material flows

  • Patient, personnel, material, and medicine flow in health care

  • Logistics process control, batch tracking and tracing

  • Reverse logistics & facility planning

  • Siting, design and operation of warehouses and supply depots

Modelling and Simulation in Transportation

  • Traffic and road management (incl. travel demand management, environmental impact, impact of traffic-induced pollution)

  • Selection, management and timing of traffic controls

  • Commercial and emergency vehicle operations

  • Fleet management and logistics

  • Public transport, maritime & harbour, intermodality, pedestrian & bicycle

Modelling and Simulation in Supply Chain Management

  • Supply chain design, optimization and operation

  • Responding to and reducing supply chain performance variance

  • Managing risk and uncertainty in supply chains
