The article shows the relevance of reliable control and monitoring of processes in re-tail supply chains. We consider terminological aspects, general problems and the benefits of effective supply chain monitoring (SCMo). The article analyzes the main drivers of con-trol and monitoring of retail supply chains. The evolution of control systems and monitoring of operations in supply chains based on the concept / methodology of the Supply Chain Con-trol Tower (SCCT) is considered. It is shown that from a historical perspective, the concept of SCCT has passed through four stages (generations): from version SCCT 1.0 to SCCT 4.0. Each generation of the Control Tower is described in detail from the standpoint of functio-nality, advantages, limitations, and software and technological implementation. In terms of methodology, the importance of ensuring traceability and end-to-end (Е2Е) visibility of the supply chain for monitoring retail supply chains has been proved. The article analyzes sig-nificant factors affecting the traceability of the supply chain, as well as characteristics, technical standards and cloud technologies. The visibility of the supply chain of a chain retail operator is illustrated by the example of the cloud platform of the companies Nexus GT and Infor.

CATEGORY  The uncertainty and risks in supply chains


Supply chain functioning on Russian market depends on the effective response to internal and external risks in a great measure. The risks volatility increases from year to year. The existing risk management practice in such companies is usually limited by the security and surplus facilities creation as well as high stock level keeping. The importance of the methodology development in logistic risk management in domestic enterprises supply chains is provided by the high level of losses and expenses related with the logistic risks presence against a backdrop of the limited practice of implementing modern risk management methods. In the article the logistic risks control and monitoring system development procedure which is based on SCEM (Supply Chain Event Management) is provided. The most critical moments peculiarities which are needed to take into account in the development process are described. Moreover, several steps are demonstrated through the example of Downstream contour of iron and steel company supply chain. Special emphasis is placed on the events identification problems as well as on the disbenefits estimation approach which appeared because of the risk event.

CATEGORY  Controlling


In the article the analytical review of companies' controlling system condition investigation made by Russian specialists is pre
sented. The controlling functions systematization is offered, the analysis of current condition, problems and tendencies in companies' logistic controlling development is made.The logistics instruments and logistic controlling algorithm in supply chain management are reviewed.
Logistic controlling is a key function in logistic management. By the results of the research made by company "Shell", the average corporate life is about 20 years. Only some corporations were succeeded to exist for 40-50 years. This analysis allows for the conclusion that big corporations' long standing was provided by the efficient planning and controlling system implementation. It is obvious that controlling implementation is a critical task. Its solution will help to improve logistic systems efficiency.

Meanwhile, the methods which are presented in scientific publications are fragmentary and incomplete, while the existing analytical tools which are used in logistic systems controlling evaluation needs the revision and the development. One of the promising solutions to the described problem is the methodology development which includes relevant models and methods for logistic controlling formation and evaluation, analysis tools and management methods.

The model of continious rolling planning, management decisions execution control and record, which summarizes modern methodological approaches and solutions connected with supply chains and production controlling, is presented in the article. The main factors of controlling system development and the classification of supply chain management performance indicators in the process of controlling system evaluation are described. The algorithm for logistic controlling and management solutions efficiency improvement in logistic systems is presented.
