Definition of Supply Chain
A supply chain is the stream of processes of
  moving goods from
  –   customer order
  –   through the raw materials stage
  –   Supply
  –   Production
  –   and distribution of products to the customer

  Material and information flow Up and Down the Supply
                                Generalized Supply Chain Model
                                      Relationship Management
                       Information, product, service, financial and knowledge flows

                                                                        Material Flow
             Supplier Network                                           Information Flow

                                           Integrated Enterprise

                                                                         Distribution Network

                                                                                                End Consumers



            Capacity, information, core competencies, capital, and human resource constraints
History of Supply Chain
Management – 1970s
• The Markets
   – Focus on Customer Loyalty
   – Quality is king
   – Product engineering is competitive advantage

• The Supply Chain
   –   Vertically integrated enterprises
   –   Primarily domestic
   –   Highly regulated
   –   Not managed beyond the extended enterprise
   –   Rigid, stable, slow but predictable
   –   Managed by function

   The essence of SCM understood. This first phase is characterized as an inventory
      'push' era that focused primarily on physical distribution of finished goods.
History of Supply Chain
Management – 1980s
• The Markets
   – Market demands variety
   – Cost is king – technology drives manufacturing efficiencies
   – Global markets developing

• The Supply Chain
   –   Deregulation
   –   Learning to manage global supply and demand
   –   Beginning of horizontal management craze
   –   Managed through functional collaboration (ERP hysteria)
   –   Fragmented and unpredictable

   Realization that productivity could be increased significantly by managing
     relationships, information and material flow across enterprise borders.
History of Supply Chain
Management – 1990s - Now
• The Markets
   –   Throw away consumerism – product life measured at blink speed
   –   Cost is still king, but manufacturing has nothing left to give
   –   Global competition
   –   Global markets

• The Supply Chain
   –   Technologically enabled
   –   Services explosion
   –   The network is the enterprise
   –   Dynamic, agile and reconfigurable
   –   Supply Chain as a strategic imperative

   Computers change the way business is done, Internet revolutionized the
     information pathway and the distribution system of the business, e-
     commerce has changed the definition of business itself.
