Supply Chain and Market Analysis

This page lists models or code developed to analyze supply chains, logistics and markets of raw materials, components, systems, or end-of-life products. The spatial scope could be statewide, regional (multiple states), national or global. The temporal scale could be days, weeks, months or years. Commonly used methodologies are system dynamics and agent-based modeling. Typical research questions include: 

  • What are the impacts of a new technology on the supply chains? 
  • Does the mobilization of byproducts help meet energy targets? 
  • What are the market drivers of intermediate products? 
  • How available are the materials of interest?
