SIM Online Shop (Variation experiment)

Online shop has three branches on the territory of the Czech Republic, orders products from the Supplier located in Germany on regular basis. Customers are served in a certain order – this allows couriers to fetch orders for several destination points and follow the route per their specified order. Once the final destination point of the milk run has been served, the curriers will head to the positioning site. If the DC rating is not satisfactory, the customer can drop the placed order, as well return late orders, and set negative rating. If the order is delivered on-time, the customer sets positive rating.

Variation experiment allows you to estimate the effect of stochastic parameters on the supply chain. You can, for example, analyze how customer behavior affects profit, peak capacity, and rating of each DC. The experiment will repeatedly run a Simulation experiment, producing statistically significant results, collecting statistical data, and providing the final result in the form of a table.
