Abstract: In today's dynamic market environment, the organisations are enforced to optimise their supply chain constraints. The objective of this paper is to identify the supply chain constraints and propose/develop methods to optimise it. Accordingly, two constraints namely, temporary price discount and anticipated price increase has been identified. Subsequently, two models namely, mathematical and artificial neural network (ANN) models are developed. The results obtained from the mathematical models have been correlated with ANN models. This paper has been concluded that the developed ANN model shall be beneficial for the contemporary companies for handling the supply chain constraints.
