ABSTRACT
Often models for understanding the impact of management practices on retail performance
are developed under the assumption of stability, equilibrium and linearity, whereas retail
operations are considered in reality to be dynamic, non-linear and complex. Alternatively,
discrete event and agent-based modelling are approaches that allow the development of
simulation models of heterogeneous non-equilibrium systems for testing out different
scenarios.
