Supply chains analysis are looking to respond to issues linked to effectiveness and efficiency, to sustainability, to resilience, to allow for opportunity for innovation and others. Findings: This research paper aims to provide an understanding of how modelling supply chains can be approached by evaluating modelling characteristics from the point of view of sustainability and resilience.
