CATEGORY Analysis in logistics and SCM Supply chains reliability and sustainability


The success of any logistics provider under the development of a digital economy di-rectly depends on the decision-making system, taking into account the dynamic nature of the environment and the optimal construction of the internal structure. In an effort to ensure a stable economic position in a competitive market, they pay more attention to both process monitoring, management system analysis and forecasting tasks. At the same time, classic models based on imitating modelling of processes and systems are proposed; for the study of control models, it is necessary to supplement the analysis based on structural diagrams and dynamic links. The use of dynamic links significantly expands the functionality of modelling methods and allows not only to investigate the stock turn, but also to simulate the con-trol actions on the system to achieve the specified parameters. Modelling processes based on dynamic links allows us to investigate the stability of logistics systems, to assess the im-pact of disturbances on the system and elements. The proposed management model for the logistics system is implemented according to the feedback control principle, which additio-nally contributes to the formation of a more accurate decision-making system. The develo-ped model has the ability to scale for different levels of planning and takes into account the dynamic nature of the processes in the logistics system, taking into account the influence of the environment. The article additionally outlines the limits of application of simulation mo-delling in the AnyLogic environment for the study of control systems, which substantiates the practical importance of using structural diagrams and dynamic links for logistic systems.

CATEGORY  Analytics and reviews Supply chain management Modern concepts and technologies in logistics and SCM


The article looks at the main tendencies of SCM ideology development worldwide. Basing on the analysis of the reports of the largest analytical and IT companies on the theme under consideration, the article reveals key factors and drivers determining the SCM concept development in the midterm. The best practice of the leading logistic and SCM companies is researched; Gartner Research, in particular, provides a list of Top 25 best international companies using SCM in 2017.

The article analyzes Gartner Research recommendations on implementing the best SCM solutions and technologies in business organizations. SCM challenges and barriers in Russian companies are identified. It is determined that world SCM leaders particularly focus on implementation of digital technologies, such as RFID, Mobile app, Big Data, Cloud Services, IoT, BlockChain, 3DPrinting and others. It is shown that besides SCM digitalization, the leaders pay attention to supply chain segmentation, business client focus, improvement of stability, dynamics and transparency of supply chains.

CATEGORY  The uncertainty and risks in supply chains


Recently the importance of logistic risks management problem is increasing. The number of publications connected with such problems as the assessment of the logistic risk event consequences and logistic risks management effectiveness is growing. The effectiveness is interrelated with the reliability, sustainability and other terms which have close meaning. Meanwhile, there is not a consistent approach to the systematization and structuring of these terms up to now. Their essesnce understanding is crucial for the approach development concernint the logistic risks management effectiveness evaluation in supply chaind and supply chain diagnostics for the purpose of risks identification. In this article the attempt to systematize the main elements of the term “supply chain sustainability” is made. Moreover, the types and response characteristics of supply chains on disturbing actions are given. The main directions of supply chain sustainability evaluation are determined and the logistic risks identification procedure in iron and steel companies’ supply chains is suggested and demonstrated.

CATEGORY Reliability and stability of the supply chain  Uncertainty and risk in the supply chain 


The modern development of supply chains create new structural formations such as process type based on SCOR-models. However, the characteristics of the model are defined only qualitatively. The interpretation of their quantitative descriptions were not conducted.
It is necessary to develop a quantitative model of their characteristics. They will help to provide the efficiency of enterprises in logistics.
The article presents two versions of quantitative description for the SCOR model characteristics.
This article describes the options of sustainability assesment based on a new standard for reliability and based on the original methodology of complex sustainability assessment for the enterprises in logistics. The original algorithm of integrated stability assessment for company's business is considered The algorithm of the sustainability comprehensive assessment can be used to assess the economic sustainability of the providers processes, also for operators in supply chain and the supply chain as a whole, as well as for the diagnosis of it’s functionality. The considered approach opens up new possibilities for the development of quantitative methods for process models assessing in logistics.

CATEGORY Reliability and stability of the supply chain Uncertainty and risk in the supply chain Terminology in Logistics and SCM


The article discusses the theoretical and terminological aspects of the resilience of supply chains. The basic stages of formation of sustainable supply chain management and supply chain resilience, their relationship with each other. The authors identify and analyze the main elements of the resilience of supply chains. The analysis shows the absence of a common terminology and approaches to supply chain resilience. As a basis to ensure the resilience of supply chains are invited to consider Tripple-A-approach, which includes elements such as agility, adaptability and alignment. The authors proposed a decomposition of each of these three elements, highlighted directions of achieving them.

CATEGORY Reliability and stability of the supply chain  Uncertainty and risk in the supply chain Analysis in Logistics and SCM


In the article process maturity model selection as an effective tool for diagnosing vulnerability of logistics processes, the characteristic of the process maturity concept and a typology of maturity models used in logistics and supply chain management. Just describe the main stages of development maturity model of logistic processes, the proposed method is demonstrated by the development of maturity model to assess vulnerability of domestic construction companies regarding logistics risks.
