In the real world, supply chains are too complex to analyze mathematically. Therefore, the concurrent simulator by object-oriented technology is a reasonable solution for the system analysis and the decision-making. This paper describes the SCM simulator which consists of participants named player and e-marketplace. In order to evaluate sensibility of a supply chain, this paper proposes to embed policy and capacity in players who are classified as follows: end customer, intermediate supplier, end supplier, and transportation server. For the first step, this paper introduces the prototype system for the case that the customer-supplier relation is established.
