Supply Chain Management (SCM) is crucial to be present in global markets as nowadays competition is between supply chains rather than between companies. Current SCM paradigms like Lean, Agile, Resilient, and Green (LARG) are usually presented as individual management philosophies. The current challenge is to make the supply chain more competitive, capable of respondingto the demands of customers in a market increasingly volatile and turbulent with agility, in conjunction with environmental responsibilities, and the necessity to eliminate processes that add no value. Organizations must implement a set of LARGPractices that will have impacts in the SC’s competitiveness. The choice of which LARG practices are adequate is a complex problem to managers in the SC. Moreover, as many of these practices will be implemented crossing companies’ individual boundaries, it is important to analyze how interoperable they are in order to guarantee successful deployment.This paper presents two models to support decision-making relating LARG Practices and their interoperability. With the ANP model the objective is to select the best LARG Practices to be the SC competitiveness; and the AHP model seeks to rank LARG Practices according to their interoperability levels. The models have been theoretically validated by experts and there is an ongoing process of real data validation.
