    In this paper, a literature review of the mathematical models for supply chain design is proposed. The research is based on the study and analysis of publications of the last twelve years from the most widespread international journal about operations management and logistics. The aim of the work lies in identifying tendencies in the literature and related open issues about the strategic decisions, economic parameters, constraints and model features considered in the strategic planning and design of supply chains. After a description of the review methodology, comparison parameters and paper exhaustiveness, some guidelines are given in order to support future works in this field.
