Supply Chain Management encompasses all key activities within the supply chain, including the sourcing, provision, and housing of raw materials; the warehousing and distribution of finished products, and the management and scheduling of works-in-progress (WIPs).
Many companies try to make more important the flexibility of their organization while concurrently try to eliminate the carrying of large blocks of stock on-site. Outsourcing of the storage of stock and its shipment to customers is often much more inexpensive and more accurate. The design is to reducing management control of daily logistics operations while also increasing the number of organizations involved in satisfying customer demand. As more companies have chosen to manage stock in this fashion, supply chain management as a particular discipline began. At its best, supply chain management improves inventory visibility and the speed and efficiency of inventory movement with the ultimate goal of improving trust and collaboration amongst supply chain partners.
