The Intersection of the Supply Chain and Transport Domains

The supply chain domain and the transport domain intersect whenever there is an item in a supply chain that shall be moved from one place to another, e.g. from a factory to a warehouse or from a retailer to a customer. The supply chain domain and the transport domain have their own models for the operation of their respective systems and they use different terms and terminology. The main objective of this paper is to describe the intersection of the two domains to have a better understanding of the different terms and models used and a common view on the upper level of the system architecture in both domains focusing on the main roles and responsibilities. The supply chain domain is described by the Supply-Chain Operations Reference-(SCOR) model and the transport domain is described by ARKTRANS. This paper describes how the SCOR operation reference model is transformed to a role model being comparable with the ARKTRANS model.
