The design of a supply chain network provides the main structure for supply chain operations, since the network is a key element in the competitiveness and investments of an extended production system. The configuration of the network is essential for business to pursue a competitive advantage. We adopt a methodology based on three layers. In the first layer, the performance of the entities candidate to join the network is evaluated and efficient elements are individuated. The second layer develops a model to configure the network. Finally, the third layer is devoted to evaluate and validate the solution proposed in the first two levels. The overall decision process is the result of the interaction of the modules dedicated to each decision layer.

Abstract

The design of a supply chain network provides the main structure for supply chain operations, since the network is a key element in the competitiveness and investments of an extended production system. The configuration of the network is essential for business to pursue a competitive advantage. We adopt a methodology based on three layers. In the first layer, the performance of the entities candidate to join the network is evaluated and efficient elements are individuated. The second layer develops a model to configure the network. Finally, the third layer is devoted to evaluate and validate the solution proposed in the first two levels. The overall decision process is the result of the interaction of the modules dedicated to each decision layer.
