A review of supply chain complexity drivers

  title={A review of supply chain complexity drivers},
  author={Seyda Serdarasan},
  journal={Computers & Industrial Engineering},
Studies on supply chain complexity mainly use the static and dynamic complexity distinction. While static complexity describes the structure of the supply chain, the number and the variety of its components and strengths of interactions between these; the dynamic complexity represents the uncertainty in the supply chain and involves the aspects of time and randomness. This distinction is also valid when classifying the drivers of supply chain complexity according to the way they are generated… CONTINUE READING
