This paper stems from a cross-fertilization research project aimed at exploring to which extent modeling methodologies and tools that are used in engineering fields could be suitable to solve management problems. A powerful object-oriented modeling language used in those contexts, Modelica, is carefully presented, and its most innovative features are discussed. Then, a very demanding management problem, namely that of understanding Supply Chain Dynamics and controlling the Bullwhip Effect, is addressed. A prototypal application of Modelica is presented in order to evaluate the capability of this language to be applied in the field of Supply Chain Dynamics analysis.

Abstract

This paper stems from a cross-fertilization research project aimed at exploring to which extent modeling methodologies and tools that are used in engineering fields could be suitable to solve management problems. A powerful object-oriented modeling language used in those contexts, Modelica, is carefully presented, and its most innovative features are discussed. Then, a very demanding management problem, namely that of understanding Supply Chain Dynamics and controlling the Bullwhip Effect, is addressed. A prototypal application of Modelica is presented in order to evaluate the capability of this language to be applied in the field of Supply Chain Dynamics analysis.
