In this work it is proposed a Methodology to model the Supply Chain (SC) Collaborative Planning (CP) Process, and particularly its Decisional view. This Methodology is based on a Framework whose main contributions are the following, (1) the consideration of not only the Decision View, the most important one due to the Process type, but also three additional Views which are the Physical, Organisation and Information ones, closely related and complementing the Decision View; and (2) the joint consideration of two interdependence types, the Temporal (among Decision Centers belonging to different Decision Levels) and Spatial (among Decision Centers belonging to the same Decision Level) to support the distributed Decision-Making process in SC where several Decision Centers interact among them in a collaborative manner.

This paper is made possible from the participation of some of the authors in a project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science and the Universitat Politècnica de València entitled “Methods and models for operations planning and order management in supply chains characterized by uncertainty in production due to the lack of product uniformity (PLANGES-FHP)”, with reference DPI2011-23597, and from the research collaboration with the Logistic Department of the Wroclaw University of Technology.
