The Total Entropy Model of Fractal Supply Chain Network System
The entropies of structure, information and the effectiveness entropy between knowledge and organization structure are main entropy sources of supply chain network. Entropy model of fractal supply chain network organization structure is established. Fractal knowledge management network outside independently organization structure is built. Finally, the entropies of structure, information and the effectiveness entropy are summed. The model shows that fractal structure has prominent effect of dropping entropy.
