A global food company wanted to review an expansion concept for one of their production plants. They asked Miebach Consulting to simulate the entire supply chain beginning at the warehouse through the point of demand within the production. The goal was to determine the ideal number of vehicles and workers, as well as the supply quality and possible bottlenecks along the transport routes. In addition, Miebach analyzed possible impacts arising from changes in the production program.
