World-class organisations realise that non-integrated manufacturing processes, non-integrated distribution processes and poor relationships with suppliers and customers hinder success. The impact of an organisation's plan on the whole supply chain is unpredictable before its execution. Simulation permits evaluation of operating performance prior to execution of a plan. IJBPSCM covers original, high-quality and cutting-edge research on all aspects of supply chain modelling, aiming at bridging the gap between theory and practice with applications analysing the real situation to improve business performance.


 Topics covered include

  • Business performance modelling, strategy
  • Vendor/supplier selection, supplier development, purchasing management
  • Supply chain management (SCM), green supply chain modelling
  • Reverse logistics, closed loop/knowledge-based supply chains, 3PL/4PL
  • Sustainable/quality based/agile/leagile/intelligent SCM
  • Supply chain performance/optimisation/risk/decision making/support systems
  • AI, information sharing in SCM, systems approach to SCM
  • Coordinated/global/flexible SCM, risk mitigation strategies
  • Stochastic supply chain games
  • IT-enabled SCM, fuzzy modelling, data mining
  • Supply chain network management, modelling/simulation, implementation
  • Training/education, information security, RFID
  • Supply chain analysis, transportation decisions, vehicle routing, bullwhip effect
  • Logistics in disaster management
  • Cross-country comparison

The main objectives of the IJBPSCM are:

  • To help firms capture the synergy of inter-functional and inter-organisational integration and coordination across the supply chain and to subsequently make better supply chain decisions through identifying key challenges and opportunities associated with supply chain modelling
  • To present state-of-art, high-quality research developments in all the advanced areas of supply chain modelling (SCM)
  • To help professionals working in the area of supply chain, academician, consultants and practitioners to share the cutting-edge information of current development in the area
  • To provide guidelines for the successful development and implementation of supply chain modelling to improve the business performance
  • To define new problem domains in the area of SCM
  • To develop new methodologies to solve SCM problems


IJBPSCM provides a platform to help academics, researchers, professionals and practitioners working in the field of business performance and supply chain modelling, to disseminate and publicise research work and to facilitate greater learning processes from each other's work.


IJBPSCM publishes original papers, review papers, field research, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in business performance and supply chain modelling will occasionally be published.
