Abstract

FMCG is considered as one of the industry with the highest competition in the world. To win this industry, customer satisfaction becomes the main thing. In this paper, authors will simulate a system of distribution of goods from PT X TBK which has 3 categories, namely M1 (biscuit), M2 (powder) and M3 (liquid). The distribution system has a problem on time delivery of goods which have a wide variety of obstacles, mainly on routing. There are 8 trucks with different routes and different utilization. There's trucks with over hour work and trucks with long idle time. The routing also causes problem for unused truck weight and volume capacity, where cost could possibly be reduced. Through Discrete event simulation and sweeping method, authors try to solve the problem by modelling the existing system and then find the solution to improve the distribution system and reaching the model objective.
