The high level of complexity connected with the modelling of supplier networks often diminishes the practical impact of supply chain management approaches. Furthermore, many of those approaches primarily focus on operative tasks. This paper proposes a concept for the dynamic modelling of supply chains. In addition, the business domain of strategic supply chain management is introduced, extending the traditional frame of reference in strategic sourcing from a supplier-centric to a supply-chain-scope. Concluding, a business component model for the domain of strategic supply chain development is laid out to illustrate the feasibility of the proposed concept.
