In this paper, we extend the model for supply chains developed in [8]. The model consists of partial differential equations governing the dynamics on each processor. Furthermore, a modelling of different types of vertices is motivated and discussed. Then, optimization problems are introduced and numerically investigated. A comparison of computing times shows the efficiency of partial differential equations for solving supply chain problems.
