Supply Chain Management - SCM


Supply Chain Management - SCM
The management and coordination of a product's supply chain for the purpose of increasing efficiency and profitability.

Typically, SCM will attempt to centrally control or link the production, shipment and distribution of a product. By managing the supply chain, companies are able to cut excess fat and provide products faster. This is done by keeping tighter control of internal inventories, internal production, distribution, sales and the inventories of the company's product purchasers.
