Abstract

Modeling of supply chain processes is fundamental to analysis of these processes and is essential for process design prior to implementation of a supply chain management system. In this chapter, the background of business process modeling is first introduced. This is followed by a summarized description and critical discussion of the major techniques for supply chain process modeling such as the SCOR model, BPMN, UML, IDEF and simulation. These techniques have been widely used in academic research and development of management information systems. Finally, future trends are pointed out and the chapter is concluded.
