The Development of a Simulation Model of Logistics Management of Pharmaceutical Company
Problem Statement: an optimal inventory management is a key element in the efficient functioning of the pharmaceutical company, which allows to implement both economic and social functions. The purpose is to develop a simulation model of a pharmaceutical company inventory management, optimizing an inventory movement scheme, an algorithm for calculating requirements, orders planning and control parameters to determine the effectiveness and decision-making. Carried out during the work tasks include the description of modern theoretical principles and basic inventory management models, Russian pharmaceutical market analysis, identification of basic models gaps, design and implementation of modified model in the system a simulation modeling and integration with a pharmaceutical company architecture, a verification of the implemented software system with real data, as well as the comparison of key indicators to assess the effectiveness of the modified algorithm. The results: a software package including a simulation modeling system that is integrated into the information architecture of a pharmaceutical company is implemented, it provides calculation orders on the basis of the modified algorithm. Practical value: designed algorithm of inventory management, that is implemented in a simulation modeling system provides a pharmaceutical company a flexible management tool to respond to changes quickly, forecast volume of the order and demand, calculate possible outcomes upon the occurrence of certain events, providing ample opportunities for further modification.
