Supply chain management system is a network of facilities and distribution entities: suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers. The control system aims at operating the supply chain at the optimal point despite the influence of demand changes. In this paper, a centralized constrained receding horizon controller applying to a supply chain management system consist of two product, one plant, two distribution centers and three retailers.
