Supply chains are now at the center-stage of business performance of manufacturing and service organizations. In this article, we provide a bird's eye view of major decision issues in the design and operation of high performance supply chains. We bring out the important role that mathematical and simulation models can play in supply chain management. We also outline a current research effort at the Indian Institute of Science in building an object oriented decision support system for supply chain management.
