Supply Chain Management Best Practices
IN THIS SUMMARY
A supply chain includes all components of a business responsible for gathering the materials and services required to make a product, as well as the manufacture and shipment of the product to stores and, ultimately, customers. Each year, American companies spend more than one trillion dollars on their supply chains, yet few of them know the best ways to manage their supply chains or make them more efficient. In Supply Chain Management Best Practices, veteran business journalist David Blanchard explains how successful businesses have taken new approaches to managing their supply chains that allow them to ship products to customers faster while reducing costs and making supply chain management an integral part of their organizations.
