Abstract

This paper proposes a novel System of Systems (SoSs) framework in order to design and optimise Supply Chains (SCs). In this paper the characteristics of System of Systems and Supply Chains have been discussed and a similarity match has been made between the two. It is interesting to note that although some of these SoSs characteristics are intrinsic in nature of the SCs others such as evolutionary behaviour and self-organization need to be modelled. In this paper, an adaptive supply chain multi-level multi-objective optimisation framework has been proposed in order to have both evolutionary and self-organized behaviour. This framework is capable of performing both local and global optimisation and adaptation to different scenarios.
