A SUPPLY CHAIN ONTOLOGY CONCEPTUALIZATION WITH FOCUS ON PERFORMANCE EVALUATION

Alicia C. Böhm, Horacio P. Leone, Gabriela P. Henning

Abstract

Organizations all over the world are increasingly aligning in Supply Chains (SCs) in order to perform more efficiently and to achieve better results. This contribution presents a SC ontology that aims at conceptualizing and formalizing this domain knowledge. Its goal is to: a) enable a better understanding among the various stakeholders & b) set the basis for an effective information sharing and the development of integrations tools. The ontology introduces concepts associated with the SC structure, functions, resources, and management issues. Since one key component of management is performance assessment, which must be done along the whole SC, the proposed ontology focuses on performance evaluation issues.
