Abstract A supply chain can involve different scenarios with different products, co-ordination structures, production strategies and locations. Enterprises need to model supply chain scenario complexities and evaluate the performance of scenarios before implementing them. This paper reviews the research in inter-firm network, organisation co-ordination structure and performance measurement, and proposes a new method for designing supply chain scenario by considering multiple influence factors. A scenario evaluation methodology is also proposed in which supply chain scenario performance is evaluated by considering production, system dynamics, co-ordination and vulnerability costs. An industry case is studied to demonstrate how the methods are applied in industry practice.
