Abstract—In order to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) cluster to face the global challenges, the definition of “cluster supply chain” is put forward as a new type of management pattern, which is the combination of industrial cluster and supply chain management. However, the related research on cluster supply chain is still in its infancy, and it is difficult to put theory results into practice. Based on the background, we give a case study of collaborative procurement in a textile & garment industry cluster to demonstrate the construction and development of cluster supply chain, in which the role of service system is described in detail. In the end, this paper summarizes an analytic framework to present the completed modeling process of collaborative procurement. The framework includes four views - business modeling, specification modeling, realization modeling, system evolution.

Index Terms—cluster supply chain (CSC); service system design; agent modeling technology; collaborative alliance.
