Abstract

We describe a different approach to using XML to suppo the simulation modeling of supply chains. Instead of usin XML to specify the simulation constructs, as most prev ous approaches do, we utilize XML to describe the supply chain itself. The Supply Chain Modeling Language (SGML) is a general, reusable, platform and methodology independent standard for describing a supply chain's structure and logic. SGML is usable by analysts using many methodologies, including simulation. We describe a sample simulation system (SISCO) that uses SGML files as input. This system uses an algorithm to "map" the SGML file contents to simulation classes contained in a supply chain simulation class library, resulting in an object-oriented simulation model of the supply chain.
