Cost comparison of Agent-Based model with simulation and 1-1 policy 12. Conclusions This chapter proposes a proper modular architecture for the information agent based on the inputs functions and outputs of the agent for supply chain management. The proposed architecture has nine different modules each of which is responsible for one or more function s for the information agent. Then we explored the occurrence of bullwhip effect in supply chains in a fuzzy environment. We built an agent-based system which can operate in a fuzzy environment and is capable of managing the supply chain in a completely uncertain environment. They are able to track demands remove the bullwhip effect almost completely and discover policies under complex scenarios where analytical solutions are not available. Such an automated supply chain is adaptable to an ever-changing businessenvironment. 13. References Baganha M Cohen M. 1998 . The stabilizing effect of inventory in supply chains.
