Conference paper


The stability of the supply chain relates to the supply chain management efficiency and effectiveness, and its concept has been extended to all aspects of business operations. This article combines researches that have been made both at home and abroad, and refers to the idea of the value chain. Based on the stability of the resource input, the stability of the value output and the stability of supply chain collaboration, we establish the three-lever index system to evaluate the performance of the whole supply chain stability, and attempts to evaluate it using analytic hierarchy process (AHP).
