Supply chain management helps partners in the chain to justify internal costs. The pursuit of cost information through the supply chain is very important for controlling costs, which helps to establish and optimize activities in institutions in the value chain. In this research, we have tried to review the literature on Supply Chain Costing in order to predict a model of management dashboard design for supply chain cost estimation, focusing on quantitative models and prediction. For this purpose, after reviewing the supply chain cost literature and examining the scope and purpose of the dashboard design, using the mathematical models and applying actual production and sales data in Tehran Province in the Zamzam Iran  Company  and Zamzam Tehran  Company 22 data courses From March 2016 to December 2017, the subject of this study, the design of the Supply Chain Cost Chain (CHCDM) model and the use of specialized software to prepare reports in the field of business intelligence, predicted the cost estimation dashboard model Supply chain and analysis reports were sensitive. Findings of the research are the best way to predict the combination method and regression method.
