Regardless of what it is called, "the new economy" is today's reality. Besides, it is the main interest of managers who presently focus on supply chain management. Similar to supply chain management, "the new economy" depends on the information and communication technologies (ICT) to achieve organizational effectiveness. The knowledge management systems in the new economic structure emphasize how firms can enhance competitive advantage through more effective utilization of their knowledge assets. In this study, a knowledge structured supply chain is utilized to underline the fact that all the members of a chain have a knowledge management system and there are effective information flows among the chain members.
