Supply chain management encompasses the planning and management of all activities involved in sourcing, procurement, conversion and logistics management. It also includes the crucial components of coordination and collaboration with channel partners, which can be suppliers, intermediaries, third-party service providers and customers. In essence, supply chain management integrates supply and demand management within and across companies. It includes:

  • Production scheduling
  • Demand planning and forecasting (coordinating the demand forecast of all customers and sharing the forecast with suppliers)
  • Sourcing planning (including current inventory and forecast demand in collaboration with suppliers)
  • Inbound operations (including transportation from suppliers and receiving inventory)
  • Production operations (including the consumption of materials and flow of finished goods)
  • Outbound operations (including all fulfillment activities, warehousing and transportation to customers)
  • Order promising, accounting for all constraints in the supply chain, including all suppliers, manufacturing facilities, distribution centers and other customers
  • The purpose of Supply Chain Management is to improve trust and collaboration amongst supply chain partners, thus improving inventory visibility and the velocity of inventory movement.
