The purpose of this research project is to help a supply chain manager to decision making easier in order to deliver final product on time to final customer. Coordination between all members of a supply chain are essential to achieve this objective and reduce bullwhip effect. The members considered on this thesis are going to be a manufacture, its supplier and supplier of that supplier (sub-supplier). A common purchase forecast is done thanks to Collaborative Planning Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) using an order point policy. A dashboard is elaborated with Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and graphics that shows the status of the supply chain. Then a simulation of a real case test how robust is the supply chain using normal random variables and evaluate how good and reliable are each of the members of the supply chain. At the end of the project there is a little experiment where a supply chain is checked with two different scenarios in which stability of demand are different. The results of that projects show an easy to use dashboard which evaluate a supply chain and its members and gives numerical and graphic information to the manager.
