Traffic and Shipments out of Inter-Firm Communication in a Textile Industrial District (version 1.0.0)

This article presents an agent-based model of an Italian textile district where thousands of small firms specialize in particular phases of fabrics production. It reconstructs the web of communication between firms as they arrange production chains. In turn, production chains result in road traffic between the geographical areas on which the district extends. The reconstructed traffic exhibits a pattern that has been observed, but not foreseen, by policy makers.

Release Notes

This model can be run in two steps, where the second one is not strictly necessary:

  1. Taking as input the number of firms that carry out a specialized activity in a production chain, it reconstructs indicators of production;
  2. Taking as input the geographical location of firms + the output of step (1), it reconstructs the flows of wares between geographical areas.
