Typically, a supply chain network is comprised by lateral links, reverse loops, two-way exchanges and so forth, encompassing the upstream and downstream activity. However, the characteristics common to most existing approaches to the design/planning of the supply chain, are the restriction to exclusively consider downstream flows between components, and/or use, as a starting point, of a predefined superstructure thus constraining the possible exchange of materials among potential members of the chain.

To operate most effectively, marketing activities must be coordinated with other functional areas of the firm. Nevertheless, in most companies pricing and promotional decisions are typically made without regard to the impact of these decisions on SC performance. Thus, a promising area that has begun to see research is the marketing-production interface. A strategy for integrating pricing decisions within the scheduling process of batch plants is introduced by Guillén-Gosálbez et al. (2005a). The same authors (GuillénGosálbez et al.

The integration of tactical planning is common practice when designing a SC. Along these lines, a tool for simultaneous strategic and operational planning in a multi-site production network is reported by Kallrath (2002). A multi-agent simulation approach to address the sequential decision-making problem under uncertainty at the strategic and tactical levels is proposed by Puigjaner and coworkers (Mele et al. 2005a, 2006a, b; Puigjaner and Espuña 2006). Their approach comprises two components: an agent-based model and a genetic algorithm.
