The purpose of this study is to propose a study into understanding unpredictable behaviour by applying environment performance indicators in a real environment. From the literature review, it is evident that a simulation model should be created that consists of environmental variables. This study is useful to managers and IT staff of a business to see how they can improve business processes.
