The paper describes the application of a general methodology for modelling and simulating the dynamic behaviour of a logistical control system. The methodology is described via the use of an industrial case study. The key features of the methodology are the utilisation of systems modelling media (such as conceptual, mathematical and computer simulation models) for developing an understanding of, and redesigning, the structural elements of logistical systems. The paper concludes with a description of the improvement in performance predicted via the redesign of the case study logistical control system and an outline of the spreadsheet application, and its limitations, of continuous simulation to ease its use in an industrial environment.
