This study aims to design and optimization of multi-layer supply chain with identifying the appropriate processes in economic, operational and strategic perspectives that result to optimal decisions. In the current issue, the Key Performance Indicators in a 3-layer supply chain is analyzed and finally it leads to design a mathematical model for the decision making. Decisions of the discussed mathematical model are in the class of the operational decisions in supply chain and a good guideline for managers and users of supply chain. Considering Key Performance Indicators creates favorable Executive Perspective during transferring the flow of materials and information for chain including suppliers, manufacturers and customers. In order to optimize the mathematical model, risk and profits are also considered. Finally, after the model is implemented in the Lingo software, effective key indicators are to be identified in order to improve the supply chain performance and increase profits.
