So, you work in the supply chain?

January 5th, 2023

Congratulations! So, just what is included in the Supply Chain Management Process?


Today’s post is by Ronald D. Southard, CEO at SafeSourcing Inc

According to Supply Chain Management companies there are eight specific areas that define the supply chain. Most people do not understand the complexity of this area or how it impacts their lives until they go to buy a new car or find an empty shelf when shopping. Each of these areas are complex with as many process areas of their own. In the procurement area, commonly referred to as Procure to Pay there are also very specific tools and processes that help to keep the supply chain moving. That is where SafeSourcing plays, and our associates are well versed in all other areas outside of procurement by necessity to do their job.

Below are the eight key areas.

  1. Strategic Planning Process
  2. Demand Planning Process
  3. Supply Planning Process
  4. Procurement Process
  5. Manufacturing Process
  6. Warehousing Process
  7. Order Fulfillment Process
  8. Transportation Process
