Research on the Evolution Method of Cluster Supply Chain Network Based on Computational Experiment

Ji-yu An, Yu-qi Zhai, Xiao Xue


The definition of cluster supply chain (CSC) is proposed to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) realize â??ant colony effectâ? and gain more profits. Considering CSC is a complex adaptive dynamic system, it is still in the initial stage and the problem of evolution is difficult to solve by static method. This paper builds a two-stage supply chain evolution model based on computational experiment and generates Agent models. The evolution model is extended to three-stage supply chain model in simulation to research the influence factors of network evolution and predict the effectiveness of service support system, supporting the development of CSC. Preliminary results show that the evolution model can provide the reference for the development of CSC.
