The aim of this article is to identify the differences between SCM concepts, particularly LeanSCM, AgileSCM, ResilientSCM and GreenSCM. These concepts are commonly considered as SCM paradigms by many SCM academics and professionals. Features of above mentioned concepts are mutually confronted and compared with initial concept mass Logistics- MassSCM, which dominated in the 2nd half of the 20th century. Unfortunately, MassSCM attributes have been inherited and passed on to the current SCM concepts. Particular SCM concepts are analysed and assessed by means of 4 fundamental principles:  Management  Productivity  Added value  Cost accounting Moreover, the 4 fundamental principles enable not only definition differences between MassSCM, LesanSCM, AgileSCM, ResilientSCM and GreenSCM but also identification of DNA of the 5 SCM paradigms. The importance of transition from MassSCM to other SCM concepts, especially to LeanSCM, is tested by model inspired by Dr. Licker, built in simulation software Witness. The model enables verification of impact of paradigm SCM change on SCM productivity appraise. Without undergoing of proper transition from MassSCM to LeanSCM any tuning of SCM concept regarding turbulent market changes since the beginning of 21st century will lead to short term temporary insular outcomes. Hence, such approach contradicts with system theory and holistic view of SCM concept. Moreover, it also hampers achievement of competitive advantage of supply chain in current market conditions.
