This article is a continuation of the series of articles devoted to the creation of industry-specific practical methodology of supply chain planning of industrial enterprises (on the example of iron and steel complexes).

The article presents the results of a survey of the process of operational planning of supply chains for metallurgical enterprises. Based on the analysis of the processes of SCOR and GSCF the following is proposed: an improved operational planning process of supply chains; the method based on the organization process of independent planning of the various supply chain stages in parallel which allows to avoid the situation of unintentional and irrevocable removal of proposals of different planners; a special synchronization algorithm for the plans of various planners. The paper examines the issues of sustainability and risks of the plans.

Scientific survey is based on fundamental and applied developments of domestic and foreign scientists in the field of economic theory, management theory, logistics theory and supply chain management, methods of mathematical modeling, business process modeling methodology, system analysis, operations research and expert evaluation methods.

The study results reveal deficiencies of the description of the operational planning of the supply chain in SCOR and GSCF; suggests an improved process and method of operational planning. In conclusion, an example of successful implementation of the developed approach at TimkenSteel is given.
