About Flostock

Flostock builds models based on System Dynamics principles, using the proprietary Flostock method. This allows building a simulation model in which the inventory behavior across an entire supply chain can be inluded. The concept is unique and has already been described in series of journals and newspapers, including the Financial Times and ICIS Chemical News. Our insights have been adopted in the curriculum of Wharton, MIT, and at least 6 European universities. McKinsey called our approach best practice in the crisis. Our specialty is Volatility.
