Nowadays, simulation tools are used to create the supply strategy of the company, which enable to create variant solutions in digital form and to find the optimal variant without intervention in real production. In this article, a simulation model of procurement for demand-driven consumption is created using software Tecnomatix Plant Simulation. It deals with the creation of a replenishment strategy simulation model, which is based on the P-Q inventory management model. The fundamental of these models is based either on ordering in a fixed amount, resp. at regular supply intervals. This decision depends on the nature of the product and its demand. Software tool Tecnomatix Plant Simulation allows creating such a model and simulating the behaviour of the system under defined conditions and testing possible variants of the potential solutions.
