The OR Society Simulation Workshop 2023: 27th – 29th March 2023

National Oceanography Centre, European Way, Southampton

Monday 27 – Wednesday 29 March 2023

For more information

The biennial OR Society Simulation Workshop brings together practitioners and academics working in the field of modelling & simulation. The workshop is being held at the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton. The workshop provides an opportunity to exchange ideas on the current and future state-of the-art in modelling and simulation. The programme consists of a keynote presentation, panel discussion, beginner/advanced tutorials and parallel streams. Breaks between sessions and the conference dinner provide an excellent opportunity for networking. The exhibition area includes poster displays and some of the latest developments in simulation software tools.

If you would like to submit a paper (deadline 25th November) or practitioner case study (deadline 13th January) there are more details here.

Webinar on Supply Chain Archetypes – Oct 26, 10 am

A system dynamics archetype to mitigate rework effects in engineer-to-order supply chains

The UK chapter of the SD society is presenting a webinar presenting an Engineer-to-Order supply chain archetype, from the theoretical perspective, based on the System Dynamic approach and Control Theory.  

This webinar will focus on the following contributions:

  • Providing an automatic capacity-controlled archetype for practice benchmarking and demonstrating the advantage of a whole system level order book controller.
  • The order book proportional controller, at a whole system level rather than just in the local subsystems, can offset the rework’s negative impact, while achieving target order book and service times. 
  • The dynamic analysis provides transfer functions, demonstrating the dynamic relationship between demand (input) with order book and lead time (outputs).
  • The derived critical condition for system stability provides guidelines for system managers to prevent the system becoming unstable.

Rick is a Ph.D. student in Logistic Operation Management at Cardiff University. His research interest is in designing resilient Engineering-to-Order (ETO) systems, exploiting System Dynamics (SD) and Control Theory (CT).

What is Networking?

Three or four times a year, the chapter organises networking events where you can meet SD practitioners and members of the policy council.  Such events can range from presentations on a single theme, informal gatherings, or partnerships with other organisations interested in system dynamics.

Network event: “System Dynamics in Climate Change Mitigation”, Manchester
