The number of studies addressing supply chain network (SCN) optimization and modeling has grown substantially over the last decade. Here we review the strategic SCN optimization literature and discuss several model features, including decision variables, model objectives, model nature, solution algorithms, SC risk, competition modeling and the multi-objective solution method. Based on this literature review, we propose a novel approach in which SCN optimization modeling and competitive facility location are simultaneously examined.
