Re: Supply Chain simulation in Arena
Whilst I know nothing about this Arena software.
as a general piece of advice:
if you are trying to model a complex system, or build a complex set of code for anything really,
Break it into blocks:
In this case I'd suggest starting with a single factory and a single wholesaler with a single retailer attached to the end.
then steadily increase the complexity.
(e.g add a new wholesaler) still with a single shop, (then you'll find can you use the same block to buy from multiple wholesalers). then you can add more retailers...
generally whilst you are testing what can be done, (in this example with multiple entities sharing code blocks) you don't need to setup all ten retailers and all three wholesalers, (just setup 2 of each)
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
