Investigation of Road Transport Enterprise Functioning on the Basis of System Dynamics


The work is devoted to the study of the possibilities to apply the System Dynamics method for the analysis of processes at the road transport enterprises. The study contains a concise review on examples of three simulation paradigms application for creating models, associated with the road motor transport. The following paradigms were under consideration: Discrete Event, Agent Based, and System Dynamics. Furthermore, the paper describes the causal loop diagram designed using the principles of system dynamics. This diagram is a qualitative model that represents the relationships between the main factors affecting the performance indicators of a road transport enterprise. The quantitative model constructed using the principles of system dynamics is also represented. The mentioned model reflects the process of functioning of a road transport enterprise during the year. The model is developed using Vensim simulation software.
