The emergence of dynamic supply chains has resulted in increased global competition and demand for greater product variety. The object of supply chain management is to deal effectively with materials flow, information flow, and financing flow of supply network in competitive, collaborative, and dynamic market environments. A critical success factor in improving supply chain management lies in integration and coordination. This paper will present a component-based framework for Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) to provide a platform for implementing integration and coordination between enterprises in supply chain. It is the multi-layer framework including database server layer, component server layer, kernel component layer and user interface layer. The component-based framework can be implemented with technology for components, interfaces, and services as available in Web Service. In addition, detailed functions components are designed. Component-based SCM could be dynamic configured in three-dimension by the sorts of enterprise type, manufacture type and products type.
