The concept of supply chain management is based on the premise that practically every product that reaches an end user represents the cumulative effort of multiple organizations.

Supply chain activities cover everything from product development, sourcing, production span functions, and logistics, as well as the information systems needed to coordinate these activities.

Supply chain management (SCM) is a systems approach to managing the entire flow of information, materials, and services from raw material suppliers through factories and warehouses to the final end-customer.
