Supply chain management has attracted much attention in the last decade. There has been a noticeable shift from a traditional individual organization-based management to an integrated management across the supply chain network since the end of the last century. The shift contributes to better decision making in the supply chain context, as it is necessary for a company to cooperate with other supply chain members by utilising relevant information such as inventory, demand and resource capacity.
