Innovations in ICT over the last two decades have moved business intelligence toward more largescale business data utilization to efficiently and effectively improve business performance. This paper presents several typical information utilization examples, identifies appropriate business data utlization methods, and demonstrates how ICT techniques such as data mining and simulation technology are technically used as analytical implementation tools for production and logistics systems in convenience store supply chains. One example of data mining techniques is an application using demand order data of new products proposed to forecast demand trends of new short life-cycle products in this study. The other example of simulation technology is an application using the delivery data of convenience stores proposed to understand and validate the operations of a retail cross-docking center which is an actual supplier between multiple product enterprises and convenience stores.
