The Amgen research environment is distributed around the world with a combination of staff and contract organizations. The Research Materials Management (RMM) organization is the hub in a hub-and-spoke model connecting compound producers with the consuming organizations. Discrete event simulation software was used to model current and proposed RMM processes and the resulting interaction with the downstream functions. In this talk I will discuss the lessons learned in simulation projects ranging from counting minutes in an automation heavy process to modeling the annual cost of outsourcing a specific task.
