# A hyperbolic relaxation model for product flow in complex production networks

• This paper presents a continuum - traffic flow like - model for the flow of products through complex production networks, based on statistical information obtained from extensive observations of the system. The resulting model consists of a system of hyperbolic conservation laws, which, in a relaxation limit, exhibit the correct diffusive properties given by the variance of the observed data.
