I was wondering if there is any repository of datasets for supply chain problems. For example, the UC Irvine Machine Learning Repository contains datasets for ML, and MIPLIB is used as a benchmark for MIP and IP problems. But I cannot find a similar dataset for general supply chain problems. Can you please direct me to such a repository, if one exists?

Note that the lists in this question, are mostly open-source libraries, not data-sets, although few of them include data-sets too. UC Irvine Machine Learning Repository is just a set of data-sets, and its main point is that it is a single web-site of Machine Learning data-set collection. You can just search there to find what you need.

    $\begingroup$ Have you checked this question. There is a list of optimization libraries (including the MIPLIB) you mentioned. $\endgroup$ – EhsanK Jun 17 '19 at 5:15

    $\begingroup$ In that case, I think you can make your comment as an edit to your post, mention that your question is different from the one I linked above (so, you won't be flagged as asking a duplicate question) $\endgroup$ – EhsanK Jun 17 '19 at 14:50

  • Global Garment Supply Chain Data - A collection of import data from various retailers - Last updated: October 19, 2013, 10:23 AM (UTC-07:00)
    [Note: The website Datahub has 11,591 other datasets.]

  • USAID - Supply Chain Shipment Pricing Data

    This data set provides supply chain health commodity shipment and pricing data. Specifically, the data set identifies Antiretroviral (ARV) and HIV lab shipments to supported countries. In addition, the data set provides the commodity pricing and associated supply chain expenses necessary to move the commodities to countries for use. The dataset has similar fields to the Global Fund's Price, Quality and Reporting (PQR) data. PEPFAR and the Global Fund represent the two largest procurers of HIV health commodities. This dataset, when analyzed in conjunction with the PQR data, provides a more complete picture of global spending on specific health commodities. The data are particularly valuable for understanding ranges and trends in pricing as well as volumes delivered by country.

  • The article "Data Set—Real-World Multiechelon Supply Chains Used for Inventory Optimization" (Dec 11 2007), by Sean P. Willems has this supplemental material: "Real-World Multi-Echelon Supply Chains Used for Inventory Optimization: Online Appendix" (Feb 8 2007), by Sean P. Willems:

    Supplemental Material
    msom.1070.0176-sm-data_set.pdf (124 KB)
    msom.1070.0176-sm-datainaccess.zip (548 KB)
    msom.1070.0176-sm-datainexcel.zip (2 MB)
    msom.1070.0176-sm-datainxml.zip (432 KB)
    Additional Dataset: MSOM-06-038-R2 Data Set in Excel.xls - Enhanced.zip (2.55 MB)

    This data set describes 38 multi-echelon supply chains that have been implemented in practice. These chains exhibit special structure that can be used to inform and test analytical models. Although the data were not collected with the intention of econometric analysis, it is possible that they could be useful in an empirical study. The data described in this paper are publicly available at the journal’s web site http://www.msom.org.

    [Note: The Manufacturing and Service Operations Management Society's new URL is: https://msomsociety.org/ - I don't see this information available on their new website, nor is it indexed for availability elsewhere.]

    In particular, each chain contains the exact supply chain network created by the contributor plus the exact characterization of leadtimes at every stage in the supply chain plus realistic yet disguised values for all the supply chain’s data. A secondary use of this data might be to support empirical research into the nature of the supply chains created. The data, available in Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel and XML formats, are open to all researchers as long as the researcher is willing to cite Willems (2007) as the source. Section 2 presents background information for the chains and Section 3 presents some observations to place the data in context.

  • Data.gov offers 1 public dataset

    NYSERDA New York Offshore Wind Supply Chain Dataset
    Metadata Updated: June 14, 2019

    The dataset contains contact and description information for local supply chain organizations, offshore wind developers, and original equipment manufacturers that provide goods and services to support New York State’s offshore wind industry. The dataset will benefit local suppliers and the offshore wind industry in New York State.

  • Huge list of public datasets on Quora.

  • OpenML has a couple of supply chain databases:

    scm1d & scm20d - The Supply Chain Management datasets are derived from the Trading Agent Competition in Supply Chain Management (TAC SCM) tournament from 2010. The precise methods for data preprocessing and normalization are described in detail by Groves and Gini (2011).
