ABSTRACT

Russian mining industry experiences a rapid growth providing an attractive market for suppliers of mining equipment. However, it is a customer-dominated market. The customers set stringent requirements for the initial equipment supply, as well as for the after-sale service and spare parts supply. The manufacturers of mining equipment are thus facing the need to rigorously analyze their supply chain, to develop a reasonable customer service policy and to adjust the supply chain to meet the requirements of the service policy. To fulfill the after-sale maintenance requirements, the manufacturers must stock spare parts within the supply chain and to design inventory control policies. This paper presents an agent-based simulation approach for estimation of the supply chain key performance indicators and to explore the service – cost trade-off. The conceptual model and the description of its implementation in Anylogic 8.4 software are provided. A case-study of a global mining equipment manufacturer's branch operating in Russia is described. The model is used to estimate the inventory
control policy parameters required to meet the target customer service level, to compare make-to-order against make-to-stock supply strategies, as well as to explore the service level – cost trade-off.

ABSTRACT

The forecasting works on cargo traffic appearance at railway stations is in hand for a long time. The possibility of station processes simulation modelling usage is considered. The main structural objects which are necessary for model creation and their technical parameters are determined. The structure for working in the software program “Anylogic” is developed. The program is configured for different situations forecasting with the possibility to choose the best result. For this purpose the input parameters are inserted into the system. They are train set approach, arrival time, schedule, wotk technology and operations sequence, loading and discharging plan, etc. The analysis of received results with subsequent decision making concerning the further process modelling for necessary results generation is carried out.

The model uses the station technological development effectively, defines the componentwise system load, determines bottlenecks. Moreover, it gives an opportunity to realize concerned processes speed regulation and operation period. It serves as the the element of the scenario forecasting system for the whole region operation. The model optimizes data collection process, regulate required resources (the amount of used railways, the nubner of required fleet of cars, etc.|) and calculates the railway station performance indicators. “Anylogic” software usage allows forecasting of work schedule for the nearest day (and more) with the opportunity to correct and influence the situation rapidly until the required result is achieved

ABSTRACT

This article demonstrates how to use the method of simulation modeling in AnyLogic in order to optimize the logistics network of industrial company operating in the industrial gas market. The model detailed basic processes associated with the transport of the product, the service requests of customers and distribution of the product to consumers. Factors were taken into account, bearing the stochastic nature, such as unevenness of production, weather conditions that affect the level of demand, the number of failures of vehicles, vehicle repair time. On the developed model, a number of scenario studies, which identified the optimal values of the control parameters of a logistics network: the number of rolling stock, additional storage capacity, minimizing the loss of the deficit and the lack of free rolling, leading ultimately to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) .

ABSTRACT

The article describes the main problems of Russia's transport infrastructure, and in particular, in the Moscow region. As part of the decision of tasks demonstrates the use of simulation as the most effective tool for testing the design and investment decisions by the example of the construction of the Dmitrov interregional multimodal logistics center.
