Abstract for: A simulation study of a large farm validating sustainable practices
A sustainable supply chain model is required for a business to maintain optimum production, profitability, market shares under the volatile market, seasonal outbreaks, lack of modern technology uses, and pandemic situations. Entrepreneurs are trying hard to integrate the sustainability concept to ensure maximum benefits in all aspects. A case large livestock farm will be modeled and build a simulation model to simulate the best possible outcomes. The model will add the primary variable of economic gain and environmental impacts through waste management. System Dynamics methodology will draw a sustainable model and economic, social, and ecological effects. The objectives of this research are to determine optimum productivity, profitability by maintaining sustainability indicators. The circular reverse logistic concept will be used to recycling and reusing poultry wastes to develop further by-products of fertilizers, biogas, and fish feed for additional profitability and saving the environment. Vensim simulation tools will be used to create the model and simulate a wide range of relevant but adjusted variables. The research expects to build a sustainable supply chain process model for healthy and hygiene products. Finally, the result will disseminate to the case industry for further extensions and amendments to achieve sustainable outputs.
