Mathematical programming models were described in Chapter 8 as the primary type of models used in supply chain configuration. However, these models have several limitations. Therefore, the integrated supply chain reconfiguration framework and the supply chain configuration methodology consider simulation modeling as an approach to address decisionmaking issues not covered by mathematical programming models. It is widely recognized that simulation can describe complex systems in a highly realistic manner and is used to explore the properties of such systems.
