Abstract

This paper generally indicates the need to improve the methodological order in the studies on supply chains. It discusses the following issues: defining, hypotheses and detailed theorems, generalizations, existing theoretical achievements, hypothetical models in research, usability of the theory for economic practice. This approach towards the research process allows to view it globally, from defining the object of research to the practical application of its results. Thus, the article proposes several recommendations for beginning researchers. The overall result of this study is to identify the need for greater order of methodological research on supply chains.
