Abstract: Modern manufacturing supply chains are hugely complex and like all stochastic systems, can benefit from simulation. Unfortunately supply chain systems often result in massively large and complicated models, which even today’s powerful computers cannot run efficiently. This paper presents one possible solution - distributed simulation. This pilot study is implemented in a healthcare setting, the supply chain of blood from donor to recipient.
