Abstract: Developments in supply chain management (SCM) have dramatically increased within the past few years to cover a wide range of cross-disciplinary topics. With the significant developments in both technologies and business environments, a service system is proposed to work optimally under complex, globalised supply chain environments. Following the studies on SCM theories, this research develops a robust enterprise supply chain services framework taking into account of risk management in firm governance. Consequently, a robust supply chain services system (RSCSS) was built by combining optimisation modelling with the six-core management service modules of knowledge, data, task, information, communication and risk. In this system, the robust optimisation method was used to manage uncertainties. Importantly, by integrating the six-core management services modules with robust optimisation, this RSCSS can assist in supporting optimal and stable operations in a wide range of enterprises, especially for small and medium enterprises running global businesses dynamically and economically.
