Abstract

In order to constantly meet the potential of supply towards the changing needs of demand, today's supply chains have to be more motivated towards demand while creating a demand-driven supply chain (DDSC) is more challenging task. Despite the fact that the first step to implement a demanddriven supply chain is supply chain process modeling, existing supply chain models neither support high level decompositions of business process nor represent the control and coordination of these business processes and their interaction. This problem can be address by service oriented architecture (SOA) as a fastest growing paradigm in the domain of supply chain process modeling. This paper is based on previous works carried out regarding the service process modeling for networked enterprises. One case is adopted to illustrate the usage of the methodical approach. It concentrates on improving or modifying methodical approach for service process modeling in the context of SOA by utilizing the two most commonly used modeling techniques including IDEF and UML which have been widely applied in industrial and enterprise modeling. The finding implies that this approach applied SOA that can transform silo business processes into more loosely coupled services, and align them with organization structure in DDSC processes.
