  • This paper discusses the connotation of the service supply chain by the analysis of service characteristics, and introduces the comparative analytic method for its definition. The service supply chain model is established using variational inequality. Moreover, the equilibrium solutions of the service supply chain model are obtained, and the related economical interpretation on it is also given. Finally, a numerical example illustrates the rationality for the service supply chain model.
