Current supply chain management software architectures,
although distributed, typically put decision making and con-
trol at the centre of the network. Such architectures do
not scale well with increasing complexity, dynamism and
volume of available business information from the so-called
“Internet of things”. In this paper, we investigate highly de-
centralised and self-organising middleware architectures for
global supply chain management. We propose to model sup-
ply chains as collections of cooperating/competing agents
that represent smart artefacts, services, and/or business pro-
cesses. We outline the key requirements to be addressed in
order to support this decentralised self-organising network
of agents governed by high-level policy specifications.
