Globalization is a trend to an enterprise in future as the economic growth of developing countries, evolution of global supply chain management, increasing frequency of international trade, improvement on information and communication technologies, and deregulation of finance and transportation. In such situation, having an exceptional supply chain management system becomes a key factor of success. In Taiwan, most marble imported from aboard, and decision makers in this industry have to know how to satisfy their customers, then do appropriate production schedule and procurement plan. But making decision is very difficult since the marble with variety of sorts and suppliers worldwide. Besides, the leadtime is too long. In order to solve this problem, we construct a model for supply chain management systems in marble industry. Functions of procurement, production, and distribution are considered in it all at once. Multi-objective programming methodology is used in the thesis to integrate the three functions, and two objectives included in the model - maximize the profit and the number of satisfied orders. Therefore, what this model want to do is assisting decision makers to decide when and what quantities of marble needed to be procured, to be manufactured, and goods needed to be distributed to their customers in order to achieve those two objectives under such constrains as capacity of storing material and inventory, and the ability of production for a company. In order to make it easier to solve, these two objectives are integrated in one via methodology of compromise programming, and the software LINGO is used. A design case in the thesis is analyzed. From the result, it shows that the model proposed is work. It provides better decision to managers in more efficient way, and reduces waste on resource in try and error to accumulate experience.
