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.

The article continues A.N. Sterligova’s publication «Logistical context of enterprise business model» (Logistics and Supply Chain Management. – №1 (66). – 2015. – pages 24-34). As it was described in that publication, in a challenging economic environment strategic changes for business can be implemented by changing their business models. The author provided a definition of a business  model (BM) as an object connected with defining, creating, distributing, supplying value to customers, and appropriation of profits through their recognition on the market. Logistics was used to develop and use BM. The model of a logistical component was described. The author suggested a set of indexes that evaluate original supplies and results of BM in order to analyze BM effectiveness according to its results and also to decide whether developing a new enterprise BM is necessary when the quality and quantity of original resources is changing.
A further research is aimed to analyze how BM can be used in various industries and to decide if figures of initial resources and results of BM can be made universal.
The present article explains why business models are significant in modern metallurgy in the framework of customer value chain. The authors analyze BM of leading ferrous metallurgy companies bearing on the proposed logistical component of BM and determines variability of its logistical component. The researcher summarizes results of BM industry. The authors examines economic factors that make logistics help companies get required financial figures.
