Abstract

Modeling and simulation is very powerful technique for studying complex systems. There exists increased concern of this phenomenon, generally through workshops, conferences and special journal issues during last several decades. Despite a number of case studies and books written, there is still some gap within methodology of modeling itself. Plenty of authors concerns much more on particular simulation study, its system and results and they do not dedicate a lot of attention to the methodology. The aim of this article is scope on the conceptual modeling for discrete-event simulation for supply chains as a vital part of whole simulation study. It concerns about the framework of conceptual modeling and conceptual model and their definitions and requirements and gives a guidance on conceptual modeling independently of the computer model coding.

 

Key words: Conceptual modeling, conceptual model, simplification, validity, credibility, utility, feasibility
