Why Should You Attend:

Supply chains and supply chain management was first discussed in the 1990s and eventually became well-recognized terms in the 21st century. However, many organizations define supply chain management as procurement or logistics. Supply chain management is the management of a network of organizations from cradle-to-cradle or cradle-to-grave. It includes all the layers of suppliers and customers and all transportation providers as well as all intermediaries.

It is a business concept that is growing in importance. Employees in organizations today are part of many supply chains, so it is critical everyone really understands what constitutes a supply chain. It is noted by business experts that supply chain concepts influence 90 percent of an organization’s costs. Supply chain management principles generate higher levels of sales, increase profits, and save the organization money. Anyone who wants to build a career must understand supply chain management concepts.

Topic Background:

Supply chain management is a concept that has evolved over many years, beginning with the implementation of materials management in the 1980s. Materials management integrated those functions involved in the management of materials and suppliers, such as procurement, demand planning, warehousing, forecasting, production planning and scheduling, manufacturing, inventory management, transportation, and customer service. These areas were moved under one boss, and decisions were based on what was best for the management of the organization’s materials to what was best for a department.

This concept proved very successful in reducing stock outs, inventory levels, duplication, etc. Materials management has evolved into supply chain management focusing on collaboration between not only the materials management area but also other functions that impact products and services.

Supply chain management brings a focus to all the layers of organizations that contribute to the final product and/or service. It moves organizations from functions to processes. Those processes cross over departmental boundaries as well as over company boundaries and require commitment of all stakeholders on the ultimate customer. It looks at all raw materials from their very beginnings, such as on a farm.
