defined supply chain
fast response, low inventory chains, is a question
of competitiveness especially in the electronics industry, where short
cycles emerge with high fluctuations. Also companies operating in food
business: retail, wholesale and production, are pressured by high
demand combined with fast inventory cycle requirement.
The value of lead-time is an increasingly important competitive factor
industries. Management of capacity represents a way to improve
benefit from fast response. Traditional cost accounting methods do not
justify better lead-times since it may mean lower capacity utilization
higher unit costs.
Many solutions have been developed for industries related to fast
consumer goods. Examples of applying the principles of agile or fast
supply-demand principles in the literature deal with computer
grocery goods. Industries with low production volume combined with high
mix do not have so many applications. These types of industries, such
machine building, construction projects, energy and infrastructure
heavy machinery, are very important. ASDN software has a variant
functionality which allows modelling complex products and product
research project that developed the ASDN software addresses
how quantitative modeling techniques, such as system dynamics
be used for improving the purchasing and distribution logistics in
driven electrical utilities industries.
Complex non-linear systems including trade-off situations between may

many general-purpose models may be extended to other industries and
applications of similar type.
