In the domain of Supply Chain Management (SCM), business process should be structured in a flexible manner to allow full use of supply chain information. To investigate the characteristics and importance as well as the limitations in supply chain process modeling, in this research, six main frameworks and references models including SCOR, GSCF,VRM,CPFR, ISA95, and SAP are compared and discussed. Finally, the state of the art and challenges in several current methodologies in supply chain process modeling are discussed. The results show that the main challenges with respect to the modeling methodologies is to extend them for supporting different stages in the development of supply chain information systems.
