Supply Chain Management Textbook

Supply Chain Management : Overview

All over the world, organizations are under pressure to reduce product development times, improve product quality and reduce production lead-times and costs. However, companies trying to improve the efficiency of their internal processes by adopting new business practices like total quality management and just in time manufacturing have realized that isolated improvements in individual organizations are not enough to achieve their objectives.

They have recognized the need for better coordination with upstream firms that supply inputs and the network of downstream firms responsible for the distribution of their products to consumers. This has resulted in the emergence of the concept of supply chain management (SCM). Today, firms compete not only on their end-products or services, but also on the strength of their supply chains.

They have discovered that they can differentiate their product offerings and provide better value to their customers only when they make improvements in all the supply chain processes.

Supply Chain Management examines the role of SCM in developing quality products and meeting customer demand faster and better than the competitors. It adopts a process view of SCM, which advocates the integration of various business processes performed across the supply chain to provide better value to the end customer.

This book describes concepts and strategies to manage and integrate various supply chain processes like demand management, purchase management, product and financial flow management, manufacturing flow management, customer service management, order fulfillment and returns management, to improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the supply chain.
