The supply chain study is adopted more and more for the competitiveness of companiespsila development. In previous works we proposed a multi-agent approach, based on interactive autonomous entities, in order to moderate the Bullwhip effect, which is an emerging phenomenon of the demand amplification within a distributed supply chain. In this paper, we focus on a higher perturbation mode so we propose to adopt a more advanced interaction form between the autonomous entities. The goal is to avoid, in a crisis situation and thanks to a cooperative negotiation protocol, the stockout condition by balancing the resources provisions throughout the system. Simulation results prove the pertinence of the proposed solution.
