The purpose of my research at the warehouse of Etos (Etos is part of Ahold) was to deliver a dynamic inbound transportation schedule which is flexible for tactical adjustments in the future.

Despite their practical importance, not much theoretical research has been done on Lateral Shipment policies (LSPs). LSP methods are extensively used in the Supply Chain Industry to reduce product stock outs. Essentially a Lateral Shipment involves redistributing stock among retailers instead of making emergency orders to the warehouse. The use of efficient LSPs can reduce the cost of emergency replenishments and also prevent stock outs that lead to loss of sales and customer dissatisfaction.

In this graduation project we had to investigate how to improve the production process to make it more flexible and improve the delivery reliability given that the demand in the market is uncertain and volatile

Operations Research (OR) group members from the University of Amsterdam have won the first price at the annual conference of the American Society for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS).

After careful mathematical research, Industrial Engineering student Loe Schlicher (University of Technology, Eindhoven) chooses simulation and specifically the simulation tool Enterprise Dynamics for his analysis. The delivered report of the project was chosen as the best thesis of 2011 for the bachelor study in Industrial Engineering and Operational Management. This article tells the story of a successful ED-Student.

The ED Tutorial has been updated to use the new features that have been introduced in ED8. This includes the General Monitor atom, a more modern looking and capable version of the Monitor atom and most importantly the ExcelActiveX atom, a stable and user friendly connection to Excel. Go to the Download page to get the latest version of the ED tutorial.

Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) uses ED Educational to meet the requirements of the logistics courses. Students are given data from real world logistics systems and use ED to analyze and optimize the flow.

The ED Community is a new forum where you can share knowledge and questions with other users of Enterprise Dynamics and where you can obtain advice and opinions from other community members and our team of simulation experts at Incontrol. The community is open to all ED users including students. Incontrol will make sure that all questions get a response although we will obviously not do the students homework assignments. Join the Enterprise Dynamics® Community today!

Your ED Educational license also has Developer capabilities. This means that you can not only build models with the atoms that come with Enterprise Dynamics, but it also enables you to modify the atoms in your library or to develop your own atoms. You are even capable of developing your own simulation applications and libraries.

For years the use of simulation in education environments has been appreciated. Also at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) simulation with ENTERPRISE DYNAMICS (ED) is used in courses.
