Abstract: With the impact of the e-business enabled supply chain on manufacturers and other members being deeply well understood and exploited, new supply chain strategies, such as vendor-managed inventory, collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment, and efficient consumer response, have begun to exploit these new communication channels.

Simulation results of e-business supply chains illuminate diverse practical effects under different kinds of demand.
