Abstract: Supply Chains are difficult to plan as they involve complex relations and maintain dynamically changing variables that influence them. In this paper, we present a discrete event simulation framework for purpose of decision making in a replacement auto parts Supply Chain. Ford Motor’s Parts, Supply and Logistics (PS&L) department supports a Supply Chain that represents a trade-off where parts are either maintained at a central distribution facility or sent directly to local distribution center. This represents a compromise between inventory transportation costs and accessibility in parts distribution. To support decisions within this environment, we present a framework to characterize this scenario as a discrete simulation problem allowing for the means to evaluate controls for the determination of optimal inventory (on-hand inventory dollars), fill rate and labor costs. Our case study results demonstrate the necessary dynamics to support this decision making process.
