Abstract: Decision support systems can play a role in improving the ability of decision-makers to assess and decide as good as. We introduced new paradigm in sustainable assessment in supply chain operations. Conceptual thinking is conducted by analysing two types of thinking namely general framework of supply chain risk management and assessment of sustainable supply chain. The content of the two types of the conceptual thinking will be analysed by observing diverse perspectives such as the constituent components, structuring the components and process of adoption. We found that there are three aspects in risks of sustainable supply chain namely economics, environment and social politics aspects. Product, processes and information flow are elements that interact with each aspect as a whole system. We proposed a conceptual model of decision support for risk assessment of sustainable supply chain. It has provided functional capabilities: modelling, data management, and knowledge management to support all decision-making processes. All risk indicators are arranged in the structure hierarchical. The proposed decision support is applying non-numeric under multi decision-maker's assessment. We presented a decision support framework that applicable in principle. The proposed system provided for eligibility proof to be implemented.
