Information Modelling of the Storage-Distribution System
The paper highlights the problem of modelling the storage-distribution system in which products are dispatched from the finished products warehouse directly to customers on the basis of the minimal correlated manufacturing, storing and transport costs. The pseudocode based on the specification assumptions followed by the subsequent project is emphasized as well. Various dispatching models are subject to the cost analysis. Equations of the system state are presented in order to illustrate the flow of products in the storage-distribution part of the logistics chain.
