An intelligent agent-based mobile phone supply chain simulation system is developed, in which a business entity or customer is represented by an intelligent agent. The proposed simulation system has six layers - raw material providers, component manufacturers, product assemblers, product holders, retailers, and final customers. There are two agents in each layer. An agent has a number of engines to implement various functions of the agent. This system can simulate many activities of a business in a supply chain either automatically or manually. The system can be used to study and simulate supply chain management technologies and methodologies.
