|dc.description.abstract||The main purpose of this final master thesis is to analyse the analysis of the chain
of decisions concerning a disaster situation as well as its consequences.
Furthermore, the logistical issues concerning resource distribution in case of a
flooding event are investigated. A particular disaster event situated in Lower
Austria is used, due to the fact that the final master thesis is developed in Austria.
Concerning this main objective, the study begins at an international level, where
cooperation and coordination of several organizations are studied, to focus
afterwards on Austrian organization. A case study is conducted to compare
practice and guidelines regarding the main decision chains. In addition to this, a
hypothetical situation is generated in terms of deciding and finding out which the
best logistical decision is as far as it concerns the satisfaction of the population.
The main objective is to reduce the number of unsatisfied customers to the
minimum and to guarantee the minimum stocks to the local distribution centres.
This operation is restricted to a limited governmental budget. Therefore, it is
necessary to explain all the cooperating and coordinating organizations involved in
a disaster situation.
The simulation and subsequent conclusions are carried out with the simulation
software AnyLogic. The simulation problem has not only the restriction of the
available budget bounded to the supplying chain, but also technical (resources,
trucks) constraints. The main objective is to minimize the number of unsatisfied
people in the area. The final master thesis is developed with the collaboration of
the BOKU University (University of Natural Resources and Life Science) of Vienna,
in particular with the Institute of Production and Logistics.
In contrast to the first theoretical part, the simulation offers a very wide range of
possibilities to model different scenarios. It is a very dynamic and interesting
procedure, capable itself to give important results. In this final master thesis, four
different scenarios are simulated, implying each of them different constraints. In
each of the scenarios the total demand of each store is given as well as the number
of total satisfied customers and units in stock. Furthermore, the results obtained
are very useful to get quite an exact approach to the real situation of a flood. In
addition to this, technical parameters like the needed stock to satisfy the demand
or the optimal number of trucks to ship stock are established. All the results are
compared within different graphics and charts, finding out the best solution in
each simulated scenario.
In summary, and due to the lack of studies around this topic, this document
becomes very interesting and a useful tool to start within the study of natural
