Supply Chain Management (SCM)
Globalization, shortening product lifecycles, shifting demand patterns, channel consolidation and outsourced operations add to the complexity of the supply chain. Yet a well functioning supply chain is one of the single biggest sources of competitive advantage for any manufacturer. And it all begins with an ability to understand demand and build the optimal supply plan.
