Study by ASDN software
This thesis work is application of the ASDN (Agile Supply Demand Networks) software to improvement toy logistics network. The researcher worked as a development engineer with ASDN software and tasks were design an example of complex toy supply demand networks, improvement the toy logistics network, optimize inventory value level, through integrated retailers, distributors, manufacturers and suppliers to reduce the lead time to customers and inventory holding cost. The research problem is How to use ASDN software to analyze and optimize current toy industrial logistics network? In order to resolve this research problem, there have four objectives will be discussed in the present study.
The first objective is study agile supply chain management, demand supply chain management, demand response strategies and inventory models in order to increase basic understanding ASDN software. The second objective is study the definition and function modules of ASDN software in order to understanding application of ASDN tool. The third objective is use ASDN tool to design a complex toy supply demand networks and explain related inventory models calculation. The fourth objective is use ASDN tool to create graph interface to analysis the complex toy supply demand networks, and optimize the analysis results.
