What is Supply Chain Management?

Supply Chain Management (SCM) refers to the management of the flow of goods and services from supplier to manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer to consumer. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption.

With the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally, SCM draws heavily from the areas of operations management, logistics, procurement, and information technology.

Not only does SCM involve the movement of a physical product through the chain but also, any data that goes along with the product (such as order status information, payment schedules, and ownership titles) and the actual entities that handle the product from stage to stage of the supply chain.

There are essentially three goals of SCM: to reduce inventory, to increase the speed of transactions with real-time data exchange, and to increase revenue by satisfying customer demands more efficiently.
