Philippine Business School · October 18, 2021

Overview

Supply chain management is regarded as a systematic business process that includes activities and strategies that can efficiently integrate suppliers, manufacturers, warehouses and distribution network so that the product is produced and distributed in the right quantity, right quality to the right locations and clients, at the right time.
 
Inevitably, problems arise in the supply chain such as delays in production and delivery of materials and/or finished goods, poor demand forecast, overstocking and under-stocking, large number of suppliers and distributors, unmanaged suppliers and logistics problems. In view of the aforesaid, there is a need to efficiently manage the different components of the Supply Chain. For manufacturers, Production Planning System is very important in minimizing problems of overproduction or lack of items to deliver. An effective Purchasing Management ensures that all supplies and materials needed by the consumers/clients are procured on time with high consideration for the quality and price of goods being purchased. Effective Inventory Management, on the other hand, is an attempt to maintain an adequate supply of goods in the warehouse while minimizing inventory costs at the same time. An efficient inventory system, therefore, ensures availability of materials whenever needed. Logistics Management, another component of Supply Chain Management, is directly concerned with efficient handling and delivery of goods which utilizes effective strategies to attain this end.
