Material flow dynamics in the automotive industry in Germany – an agent based approach
AbstractIn this paper we present a methodology for assessing material flow dynamics and their regulation by including the level of suppliers, producers, consumers and waste treatment in the automotive industry and by combining economic and technological features of their activities. Given the complexity of these processes in terms of time and agency we use a multi-agent approach for such an analysis.
