Application of Simulation in the Area of Humanitarian Logistics – A Systematic Literature Review
Widera Adam, Henke Sebastian, Hellingrath Bernd
The amount and diverse nature of simulation approaches in the humanitarian logistics research has increased significantly in the recent years. In order get a better understanding of the existing simulation paradigms and their added value for different application cases, we have executed a systematic literature review according to vom Brocke et al. (2015). The results provide a structured overview of the state of the art and allow for a better identification of promising matches between specific simulation approaches and humanitarian logistics functions.
