Due to the complexity of present day supplychains it is important to select the simplest supplychain scheduling decision support system (DSS) which will determine and place orders satisfactorily. We propose to use a generic design framework, termed the explicitfilter methodology, to achieve this objective. In doing so we compare the explicitfilter approach to the implicitfilter approach utilised in previous OR research the latter focusing on minimising a cost function. Although the eventual results may well be similar with both approaches it is much clearer to the designer, both why and how, an ordering system will reduce the Bullwhip effect via the explicitfilter approach. The “explicitfilter” approach produces a range of DSS designs corresponding to best practice. These may be “mixed and matched” to generate a number of competitive delivery pipelines to suit the specific business scenario.
