Can anybody point to examples of using open-source discrete event simulation packages (simpy, salabim, simmer, etc.) to model inventory policies for perishable goods?

I'm looking to make a proof-of-concept simulation to evaluate push-based stocking decisions under conditions of highly uncertain demand. I could probably code this as series of big if-loops, but wanted to see if there's anything out there to review. All I've seen in Google is academic papers recommending a new algorithm!

  • $\begingroup$ There are multiple approaches to simulation that might involve perishable goods. Can you elaborate more on how the logic of the simulation would be different? $\endgroup$
