Title: Intrinsic Problems in Simulation of Logistic Networks


Authors: Falko Bause and Heinz Beilner



This article provides an example of modelling a logistic network, versions of which do not possess a steady state, or take very long to reach a stable phase. We show that these system characteristics are hard to detect using simulative analysis. Simple analytical models illustrate that the effects are characteristic for logistic networks and for their models.
