What is Supply Chain Management?

This is the management of all processes that go into making a product or a service. It starts with the raw materials and ends with the finished product. Now, we also have reverse logistics as part of the process. This is when your assets get put back into the supply chain for reuse or recycling.

There are 5 parts to a supply chain:

  • The plan
  • The source of raw materials or services offered
  • Manufacturing the products
  • Delivering the products
  • Returns & reverse logistics

Why is Supply Chain Management Important?

Supply chain operations management is important because having an efficient and cost-effective supply chain affects a business’s bottom line. Our goal in providing assistance with supply chain solutions is to help your business meet deadlines efficiently. 

A well-managed supply chain helps your product get into the hands of your end users more quickly. It also cuts costs to give your business the most profits possible.

It also includes supply chain risk management. We can help you to identify any risk in your supply chain, and come up with a plan to mitigate that risk. Part of the supply chain management definition is to constantly evaluate the processes involved to identify points of improvement and potential risks.
