Supply chain management refers to all the management functions related to the flow of materials from the company’s direct suppliers to its direct customers. In this paper, we will propose a generic supply chain management system, and describe how the system works in terms of information exchange, workflow coordination and flexible logistic route. We will introduce two data models, which are called PDM and WfMS, and explain how to classify the proposed system into them. And then, we will further describe how the back-end three-layered architecture stores the dynamic data type into the database.
