The paper presents a concept, which combines established analytical approaches of inventory and transport management with a simulation-based approach in order to increase robustness within a dynamic environment. The approach supports the selection of appropriate measures to counteract demand fluctuations and disturbances. In addition, it operationalizes robustness to provide a possibility for an evaluation of the distribution system in this respect. The work delivers a basis for an applicable approach for the identification of suitable measures to proactively evaluate various system settings and avoid inefficient system states.
