Supply Chain Management

What is the supply chain management (SCM)?

Supply chain management (SCM) is a process to optimize the entire flow from production to sales, in which multiple businesses such as suppliers, manufacturers, and logistics companies are involved so that they can produce good products from raw materials and provide them to customers.

Because of logistics globalization, the companies involved in the supply chain (suppliers, manufacturers, logistics businesses, and retailers) can work together by using various systems such as WMS and by supplying information so that they can gain some advantages, such as reducing inventory and reducing logistics costs.

In particular, inventory management is the most important issue.

As mentioned above, by supplying the information of all companies, various information can be obtained, such as the appropriate purchase quantity, stock status, and the right time for delivery, and can understand where useless stock exists and where there is a lack of inventory, thus reducing wasted inventory.

By finding these issues, wasteful logistics costs can be significantly reduced.
