What is Supply Chain Management?

Supply Chain Management is a diverse and growing professional business field. Supply chains are made up of all the companies that participate in the design, assembly, and delivery of a particular product.

  • Vendors supply raw materials.
  • Producers convert those raw materials into products.
  • Warehouses store that product until it’s needed.
  • Distribution centers pick up and deliver that product.
  • Retailers, online and in-store, bring that product to consumers.

Supply chains are the reason that a producer can provide customers what they want, when and where they want it, at the price they need.

In the context of today’s global economy, there is an ever-increasing demand for greater innovation, increasing efficiency, and cost reduction, all in an effort to generate recurring value for the firm and its customers.
