In this chapter the building blocks developed in Chap.  4 are used to model the Southern Thailand Rubber supply chain. After the model is built, it is validated to check the consistency of the observed movement and the material movement at the regional level. The chapter concludes by analysing the capability of the model by using two case studies.
