Development of a simulation-based tool for the dynamic control of the adaptability of integrated value chains in medical technology.

The BMBF joint project DyWaMed aims at the “development of a simulation-based tool for the dynamic control of the adaptability of integrated value chains in medical technology”. The aim of the subproject of the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is to develop a network-based location evaluation procedure with which existing value creation networks, including their networking with local suppliers and the increasingly important aspect of adaptability, can be mapped and evaluated in comparison to alternative network and location constellations. The aim is to ensure that the potential benefits of greater adaptability of domestic locations and value chains are adequately reflected in evaluation methods for location comparisons. In the project network, the new evaluation and simulation methods will be tested and validated at user companies in the field of medical technology.
