Abstract [en]


The supply chain design defines the operating basis of a supply chain and thereby naturally affects the strategic and financial performance of a company. Yet, companies often tend to neglect to include supply chain design in their strategic planning processes, partly due to the fact that there has been a lack of decision support system for these crucial decisions. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to describe how advanced planning systems (APS), as a standard commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) decision support system, can be used to design and configure the most efficient supply chain structure. To illustrate this, the paper includes two case studies that have used APS to analyse and re-configure their respective supply chains. The cases show many similarities, but also differences in terms of modelling techniques and project management, impacting the results and usefulness of employing a standard APS for supply chain design.
