This article provides a structured analysis for conceptual and theoretical developments in the field of supply chain management. The article proposes a conceptualization of the supply chain problem domain called the "3S Model." The model highlights three dimensions of interest to supply chain scholars and practitioners alike: the synthesis of the business and resources network; the characteristics of synergy between different actors in the network; and the synchronization of all operational decisions related to the control of the production and delivery of goods and services.
