The purpose of this project is to develop a systematic approach for the development and analysis of supply chains. The basis for this is an identification and definition of generic elements and structures in order to establish a taxonomy of supply chains architectures. Furthermore, it is the aim to define performance measures for supply chains and to identify relationships between structures and performances (both efficiency and effectiveness). The supply chain will be seen in a strategic context, including technological, organisational and inter-organisational aspects with special focus on new structures enabled by the possibilities of new ICT and new ways of organising the interplay between enterprises.
