Abstract: Achievement of the planned supply chain (SC) performance depends not only on the excellent planning and scheduling techniques but also on execution control. SC managers spend ∼40-60% of their working time handling disruptions. The issues of disruptions management in SCs have been tackled so far from perspectives of business process frameworks, information technologies and control theory. This confirms the multi-disciplinary nature of the SC control domain. This study aims at delineating the multi-disciplinary perspective of the SC control as composed of the elements from Supply Chain Event Management (SCEM), Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) and control theory. The objectives are to identify possible interfaces and new managerial insights emerging from the synergetic effects. With the gained results, a systematic analysis on the interfaces 'technology-process-model' is presented to improve existing practices of SC control.
