Scope and Goals:

The complexity of real-world systems (including industrial, supply chain, logistic, health care systems, etc.), their dynamic changing behaviour continue to challenge researchers and practitioners in different areas and application domains. Usually complex systems are characterized by a number of interacting entities and stochastic factors that dynamically evolve during the lifecycle of a real-world system. Engineers and Managers usually take complex decisions in short time without the possibility to predict all the consequences of their actions. They should be able to take into account the system behaviour as a whole, delete any restrictive assumptions and focus their efforts on results applicability (the results of the decision process should be easily and effectively transferred to the real system).

It is widely recognised that simulation is a very powerful methodology for supporting decision problems within those systems whose high complexity, owing to the relationships linking the variables involved and the random nature of those variables, prohibits the use of analytical methods and models unless they are extremely simplified.

Modeling & Simulation methodologies and techniques always provide advanced tool for choosing correctly, understanding why, exploring possibilities, diagnosing problems and transferring scientific results to real systems. In addition, Modeling & Simulation usually provide innovative solutions and new user-friendly tools, with special attention to integration into industry and supply chain business processes and management.

Scope and goals:

Industrial development and markets globalization generated extended and complex supply chains in terms of number of actors, their locations, flows of items, information and finances as well as production and logistic strategies based on just-in-time manufacturing. Even if a number of crises (i.e. natural disasters, terrorists attacks, economic crises, health threat diffusion, etc.) have underlined the need to consider a reassessment of the economic development model based on globalization, such crises acted as contingent factors without changing the reference scenario for leading companies operating in global markets.

The financial crisis (started at the beginning of 2008 and still ongoing) hasaltered the reference scenario involving the most important industrial sectors:automotive, high-tech, telecommunication, aeronautics, maritime transportation, etc. Consider the automotive sector, leading companies, such as Toyota, are redesigning for the first time (after many years) their supply chain based on just-in-time manufacturing; General Motors is facing its greatest crisis after the first world war crisis. In each sector companies have to properly address a number of potential risks related to production and sourcing strategies, logistics and distribution strategies and green industrial operations and green supply chains. When considering the effects of the financial crisis, there is a need to restructure industry and supply chain operations to avoid additional supply chain disruptions, companiebankruptcies and production stops.

Risks and vulnerabilities mitigation and control will continue to receive a great deal of attention (above all along the supply chain to reduce financial risks of weak suppliers) and, in times of economic downturn, companies will focus their effort in identifying and adopting new models to ensure technical, economic and environmental sustainability of industry and supply chain operations.

This special issue aims at providing the opportunity for authors to submit original and unpublished articles on innovative ways to use Modeling & Simulation for technical, economic and environmental sustainability of industry and supply chain operations.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to: 

  • Risks analysis and mitigation by using Modeling & Simulation
  • Modeling & Simulation as validation tool for decision support in the financial crisis environment
  • Modeling multiple sustainability aspects in complex systems
  • Models for technical sustainability of industrial operations
  • Industrial Operations Analysis: new production strategies
  • Inventory Management: new sourcing strategies and new just-in-time paradigms;
  • Sustainable transportation and distribution strategies
  • Drivers and guidelines definition for industrial processes and supply chain sustainability;
  • Promising opportunities analysis within the new reference scenario characterized by the global financial crisis;
  • Models for economic sustainability of industrial operations
  • Green industrial operations
  • Green logistics and supply chain

Papers that propose models including multiple sustainability aspects are particularly encouraged.

Scope and Goals:

During the last years, the industrial production trend has been characterized by wider networks enterprises (national and international), by global sourcing and by global market. In such a scenario, the dynamic changing behavior of industry processes and the global evolution of the supply chains require continuous research and development advances for guarantying higher competitiveness.

In effect, a wide range of factors affects the behaviour of industrial plants, manufacturing systems, logistics nodes and supply chains. The high number of interacting entities as well as the complexity of the operative processes require to apply ad hoc models capable of considering many stochastic factors interacting and dynamically evolving along the lifecycle of the real-world system being considered.

Starting from these considerations, a simulation-based approach can be considered as the best solution for choosing correctly, understanding why, exploring possibilities, diagnosing problems and transferring scientific results to the real systems. In addition, Simulation usually provides innovative solutions and new user-friendly tools, with special attention to integration into business processes and management.

Modeling & Simulation is a growing research field capable of supporting, as powerful decision making tool, industrial evolution and global supply chain.

The Special Issue focalizes on Modelling and Applied Simulation in Industry and Industrial logistics by considering the application of simulation to new fields, theoretical instruments based on simulation and cross methodological research involving different research area. Authors are kindly invited to include in their papers all the research works, case studies and application both theoretical and applied.
