Welcome to "Multi Echelon Inventory Simulation Using R Simmer". This is a project-based course which should take about 2 hours to finish. Before diving into the project, please take a look at the course objectives and structure. By the end of this project, you will gain introductiory knowledge of Discrete Event Simulation, Multi Echelon Inventory Systems, be able to use R Studio and Simmer library, create statistical variables required for simulation, define process trajectory, define and assign resources, define arrivals (eg. incoming customers / work units), run simulation in R, store results in data frames, plot charts and interpret the results.

Skills you will develop

  • Discrete Event Simulation
  • Stock Management
  • R Programming
  • Data Analysis
  • Supply Chain

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
