CSCMP’s Definition of Supply Chain Management
Supply chain management encompasses the planning and management of all activities involved in sourcing and procurement, conversion, and all logistics management activities. Importantly, it also includes 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.
As you can see, there are a lot of factors involved in the supply chain management process. What’s more is that businesses large and small rely on supply chain efforts to keep operations running smoothly. This translates into plenty of job variety, spanning from specialist positions to more general ones.
