It has been proposed a method of constructing a supply chain in the cyber space as a multi-agent system by linking enterprise agents which is generated from each model of the component enterprise in a supply chain, by authors. Based on the proposed method, a prototype of the CPS platform for smart supply chain configuration has been implemented for discrete manufacturing. By using this platform, it is possible to register models of retailer, manufacturer and supplier enterprises with different behavior types, as an enterprise e-catalog. Furthermore, it is also possible to configure various virtual supply chains by changing the combination of enterprises. On the configured supply chain, it can simulate the behavior from the viewpoints of each enterprise and an entire supply chain. Several use cases of the platform have been executed. These use cases and their considerations are provided useful findings towards construction of a further practical CPS platform for a smart supply chain configuration.
