Today’s integrated refinery supply chains embrace two distinct types of complexities – (i) a complex production processes that can operate in various regimes, handling different raw materials and producing a variety of products, and (ii) a complex network of intelligent plan-source-move type elements that synchronize among the far-flung supply chain entities to ensure smooth, efficient, and profitable operation. Modelling such socio-technical systems poses a significant challenge.
