Demand analysis is of fundamentally importance in the implementation of information system. Business process Reengineering (BPR) often gets involved in the process of demand analysis and plays a crucial role in the achievement of project objectives. Business Process based Simulation (BPS) provides a precise and visual method to analyze and compare the concerned performances before and after BPR. The paper presents an industrial experience in using the BPS tool to demonstrate the effects of BPR on restraining stocking-up and overdue payments in the distribution management of a supply chain.
