This paper presents an approach for modeling supply chain networks and logistics operations using a custom developed supply chain modeling library wholly integrated into a general purpose commercial off the shelf simulation software package. Advantages of the current approach include rapid model development, high degree of reusability, database driven architecture, and the ability to insert prebuilt or custom tailored system operations demand models for assessing the direct linkage of supply
