Supply Chain Multidimensional Automated Model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This project provides a historical overview of how supply chains developed. There are seven eras divided in accordance to the time in which the business world developed. This project explains the differences and the similarity between each of the eras, thus creating the supply chain Optimal Multidimensional Model of era six and the Automated Multidimensional Model of era seven. The slow pace of change in some business aspects, and the overlapping economic effects; the phrase “Era” is considered appropriate. Due to the limitations placed by the conference and the early stage of this research; this paper will explain the literature behind building the models for eras six and seven. The aim of the research is to create the Optimal Multidimensional Model for small and medium sized companies in order to help them map out the best supply chain. The supply chain Automated Multidimensional Model is an interactive system that helps industries with automated facilities and products pick the best supply chain model for their market and commodities. Both models will be tested by the use of a Delphi study which will be analyzed by fuzzy logic in order to estimate the degree of belief for each statement. This project is still in its preliminary stage; therefore the final results cannot be quantified. However an outline of both supply chain models will be presented at the conference
