Abstract

This paper presents a framework for supply chain decision‐making. The framework is used to gain insights into applications of modelling. Current modelling practice is reviewed through a literature survey. The principal finding is a lack of published research in the area of modelling supply chain effects in the product development phase. However, it is in the product development phase where the majority of product life‐cycle costs are determined. As a guideline for further case research, we propose an approach for integration in product life cycle modelling systems. For practitioners, we point out some major requirements for implementation. Finally, we demonstrate an early application of some of the ideas.
