Supply Chain Management

supply chain management cycleSupply chain management has become increasingly strategic and critical to the survival of any organization operating in today’s competitive marketplace.

Supply chain management is constantly evolving and involves managing relationships with stakeholders both within and across organizations, so that high quality products and services are designed, developed, built, handled, and delivered economically – at the right time, in the right quantity, to the right place and to the right customer
