Is Supply Chain an Integral Part of Business Processes?
It is the question that needs to be answered and understood before you choose this course. Imagine you are buying a computer, what do you look for and want? You look for “Intel inside”, standardized configurations and compatibility but buy a less expensive computer that is unique and “just for myself” one.

In today’s hypercompetitive market space, supply-side commoditization and demand-side customization is the challenge faced by many organizations. So how can a Corporate meet this expectation of a customer that is you?The experience of successful brands indicates that they integrate business processes of demand management and supply chain management to the customer lifecycle. So, supply chain management is a core activity that has a high impact on efficiency and productivity in an organization.
