Today, a shelf made in India can hold tea from Assam, matcha from Japan and coffee from Africa. The modern consumer can just walk into a store and purchase something that originated from across the world. It is owing to evolving connectivity worldwide that markets are expanding across country borders and changing the face of supply, demand and distribution.
Expanding markets have lit the fuse of a global trade boom. But procuring materials, creating a product and distributing it requires the synchronisation of multiple, independent procedural elements to streamline operations. This is where supply chain management comes in.
Supply chain management is the end-to-end management of a network of business processes and activities. The art of such management requires planning, design, control and implementation of all business operations relating to the production cycle. This encompasses everything from procurement, manufacturing and distribution to sales order fulfilment functions.
Profitability is key to the success of a business. To ensure product availability while keeping the cost of manufacturing down, the sourcing, set-up and shifting of products, materials and manpower require a strategic approach.
Whether a business operates on a global or a local scale, keeping the cost of operations within the financial estimate requires a dynamic strategy. During the procurement stage, the strategy guides the localised or economic sourcing of raw materials through vendors and suppliers. And for the production stage, this strategy could involve a set-up where the cost of infrastructure and manpower is low.
The availability of a product is another aspect that is ensured through a supply chain strategy. The distribution stage involves an efficient network that spans warehouses that can store inventory and transportation systems to move the product to different local or global markets.
It is paramount for a product to be available to the end consumer at the right time, place and price. And for a business to ensure all requirements are met, positioning its operations is a priority.
