Supply chain models (MERIT, EDM and related chain models) (KB-33-001-013)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


Two types of supply chain models have been developed at WEcR to ex-ante analyse the impact of public and private policy changes: 1) firm behaviour models and 2) market equilibrium models. MERIT (Model for Economically Robust InvestmenT decisions) is part of the first type. It is used to predict firm decision making and behaviour. MERIT is used to analyse the economic viability of e.g. manure processing technologies and algae production systems, and to analyse incentive mechanisms for food safety control. EDM (Equilibrium Displacement Model) is part of the second type.
