Today, knowledge and intellectual capital of the organization are the main factor in competition and, in other respects, these supply chains compete with each other, and thus organizations must work to integrate the entire supply chain in an integrated manner in coordination with other members of the chain. On this route the integrated management of supply chain knowledge is important both in improving the functional characteristics of the chain and in promoting the integrity of the supply chain the present paper focuses on supply chain review and others the evolution of that pendulum then discusses its management and its role in the supply chain. The theoretical review of the subject literature shows that the role of knowledge management in supply chains is not only undeniable, but with the development of information and development technology.
