The purpose of article is to elaborate a consensus determination algorithm in supply chain management support systems, which may lead to achieving a greater flexibility and effectiveness of such systems. Using consensus methods in resolving the conflict of knowledge, in other words, determining a variant to be then presented to the user, based on the variants proposed by the system, may lead to shortening the variant determination time and to reducing the risk of selecting the worst variant. As a consequence, supply chain management might become more dynamic, which obviously influences the effectiveness of the operation of particular organizations and the entire supply chain. The originality is using consensus method to resolve knowledge conflicts in SCM systems to help decision-maker to take decision earning satisfy benefits. (original abstract)
