Supply Chain Studies

A Supply Chain is a system of organization, people, technology, activities, information and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer. Supply chain activities transform natural resources, raw materials and components into a finished product that is delivered to the end customer.

A Supply Chain consists of all parties involved, directly or indirectly, in fulfilling a customer request. The supply chain not only includes the manufacturer and suppliers, but also transporters, warehouses, retailers, and customers themselves. Within each organization, such as manufacturer, the supply chain includes all functions involved in receiving and filling a customer request. These functions include, but are not limited to, new product development, marketing, operations, distribution, finance, and customer service.

A typical Supply chain may involve a variety of stages. These supply chain stages include:- Component-Raw material Suppliers; Manufacturers; Wholesalers/Distributors; Retailers; Customers.
