Introduction

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a systems approach which involves the flow of materials and information among all of the firms that contribute value to a product, from the source of raw materials to end customers. Supply Chain Management (SCM) has emerged as the new key to productivity and competitiveness of manufacturing and service enterprises. Business competition is now between supply networks rather than individual corporations. Supply chain management (SCM) touches major issues, including rapid growth of multinational corporations and strategic partnerships; global expansion and sourcing; environmental concerns, fluctuating gas prices; each of these issues dramatically affects corporate strategy and bottom line. Because of these emerging trends, supply chain management is the most critical business discipline in the world today.
