This study proposes a comprehensive configuration for supply chain management process and it enables to understand relationships among supply chain integration, supply chain strategies, supply chain risk factors, and performance criteria. Supply chain configuration criteria are determined both reviewing the literature and using experts' knowledge and fuzzy cognitive map methodology is employed to consider the interrelations between criteria. Fuzzy cognitive map methodology is a suitable tool due to the presence of causalities, positive as well as negative directions of relationships among criteria, and the difficulty of expressing the interrelations with crisp numbers. The application is conducted in an automobile manufacturer in Turkey, and the results are analyzed.
