The SM21-MSA program was created to improve the end-to-end planning for the delivery function of both military and commercial supply chains and collaborative regional transportation planning. The SM21 team used both a commercial and academic approach in developing the MSA program. Since a two-pronged approach was used, this document is divided into two sections. The first examines the work completed by the commercial sector and the commercially developed modeling and simulation tools. Examined are reports developed for SM21 based on the TranSystems SCASN model, including the Trade Corridor Gap Analysis and the Simulation Analysis Report. The last section examines the academic side of the SM21-MSA program. The academic program used a dual modeling approach focusing on simulation and optimization, and it used models that are generic, data driven, and flexible.
