With the development of supply chain businesses and natural disasters, the probability of risk of supply chain disruption is increasing and this kind of risk can bring huge losses to the enterprises. In this paper, disruption management strategy is an effective and necessary part of the supply chain disruption risk in supply chain management research, which is a new bright spot in the field. The new management ideas and sophisticated quantitative analysis results continue to emerge, but they are overall relatively fragmented, lack of system. So supply chain disruption research related to risk management is still in its infancy. Through the theories and methods of management science of quantitative supply chain integration and management, optimal configuration of the entire resources and benefit maximization of the whole supply chain can be achieved. The paper reviewed foreign research on quantitative integration of supply chain management, and proposed a comparative analysis, finally provided some possible future research directions.
