We model the behavior of the demand distribution and lead-time distribution separately and determine the value of demand during lead time by discrete-event simulation. A new methodology determines the optimal inbound-resupply strategy when suppliers ship goods to receivers. An evolutionary metaheuristic uses discrete-event simulation to calculate safety stock levels and minimize total logistics costs.
