Logistics Planning for a Large Mineral Resources Company


Logistics Planning for a Large Mineral Resources Company

Companies in the mining and energy sectors face many of the same supply chain challenges of other industries. Transportation services, warehouse management, and global services are intertwined in moving equipment and supplies to the work site and shipping cargo to customers. These challenges make it difficult to predict the likely system impact of local decisions or how changes in one part of the system cause undesirable effects to other divisions. In 2013, the largest mineral resources company contracted Goldratt Research Labs and Amalgama to develop a simulation tool that would allow for better decision-making on a day-to-day and long term basis. The project requirements included...]

New Book on Supply Chain Management Is Now Available


New Book on Supply Chain Management Is Now Available

For those interested in supply chain and operations management, we recommend a new book - "Global Supply Chain and Operations Management: A Decision-Oriented Introduction to the Creation of Value". The co-author, Dmitry Ivanov, is a professor for International Supply Chain Management at Berlin School of Economics and Law. He is also an author and co-author of 250 publications. You can download one of his books on decision-making in supply chain and manufacturing with AnyLogic optimization and simulation software on our website. The new book is aimed mainly at students and academics, but it might definitely interest those who work in logistics and operations management. This book presents global supply chain and operations management from a comprehensive perspective, focusing on the operational roles in the networks and presenting the quantitative and organizational methods needed to plan and control the material, information and financial flows in the supply chain.

Applying Simulation to the Oil and Gas Industry


Applying Simulation to the Oil and Gas Industry

For any industry, adopting new technology can be costly both in time, and money. As most of you know, adopting simulation modeling is the way around making costly unnecessary changes and depleting human resources. New to the simulation and modeling concept as a decision-making and problem-solving tool, is the oil & gas industry. Alvaro Gil from Steam Systems Ltd. guides us through the implementation of simulation modeling, the data behind the models, bumps in the road, and ultimately the return on investment. Utilizing simulation and modeling to address oil & gas industry challenges, Stream Systems helps clients realize billions of dollars in cost-savings.
