Abstract

Success of any current military operation is strongly related to the level of its logistic support and supply of all crucial resources such as water, food, spare parts, fuel etc. Some of these resources can be obtained from the local market, some from neighboring countries or just from the homeland. Increasing computing capacity and speed of CPU allow us to develop very sophisticated software for modelling and simulation of these logistics supply chains in order to find the best possible solution up to our own assumptions and criteria. The aim of this paper is to show the possibility of modelling and simulation as a suitable tool for the military supply chain. The article deals with the application of the computing modelling and simulation theory, statistical methods for data estimation and verification and validation of the model. There is also the final experiment with received data analysis to bring possible scenarios to the decision makers about the structure of the logistics chain.

Key words: computing modelling and simulation, verification and validation of mode, military logistics chain
