Product accessibility is a serious feature of client package for sellers and industrialists. While product being out of stock (OOS), both sellers and manufacturers may agonize relying on demand-side features, such as whether customers are extra dependable to the store. Though together sellers and producers contribute to OOS conditions, the supply-side features, like whether seller or producer is accountable for in-store contentment might effect OOS situation. Direct store delivery (DSD) includes the producer sidestepping the seller’s delivery center and transporting product straight to the seller’s distinct warehouses. This article presents the Supply and Demand (SAD) concerns concurrently to define the insinuations of stock outs for both sellers and producers using an agent-based simulation. An agent-based simulation permits reflection of such concerns under recurring OOS circumstances to define the general and complete effect to seller and producer performance.
