Supply Chain Management (SCM)

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the management of materials or services from the point of origin to the point of consumption. SCM involves the design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities. Supply chain leaders are challenged to reduce costs, maintain optimized inventory levels, ensure the quality of materials, and operate in a globalized marketplace. Inefficiencies in the supply chain can increase operating costs by up to 15%.
