In commerce , supply chain management SCM , the management of the flow of goods and services,  involves the movement and storage of raw materials , of work-in-process inventory , and of finished goods as well as end to end order fulfilment from point of origin to point of consumption. Interconnected, interrelated or interlinked networks, channels and node businesses combine in the provision of products and services required by end customers in a supply chain. SCM encompasses the integrated planning and execution of processes required to optimize the flow of materials, information and capital in functions that broadly include demand planning, sourcing, production, inventory management and logistics -- or storage and transportation. Although it has the same goals as supply chain engineering , supply chain management is focused on a more traditional management and business based approach, whereas supply chain engineering is focused on a mathematical model based one. An example of these conflicts is the interrelation between the sale department desiring to have higher inventory levels to fulfill demands and the warehouse for which lower inventories are desired to reduce holding costs. In , Keith Oliver , a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton introduced the term "supply chain management" to the public domain in an interview for the Financial Times.
Supply Chain Design and Management introduces the concept of a sharing mechanism that will ensure the sustainability of a supply chain by fair distribution of costs and benefits. This book provides a holistic view of the supply chain from product development, purchasing, manufacturing, distribution and storage, to retailing. The presentation of the enabling technologies in supply chain management will help companies better understand their options.

Supply Chain Risk pp Cite as. Recent years have seen a rapid decline in the UK textile and clothing manufacturing industry and those companies that have survived have been forced to outsource or move production offshore to low labour cost economies as demands from retailers for lower prices puts margins under pressure. The way in which these companies manage their design capability in a global supply network becomes critical, because of the increased lead times that offshore manufacturing presents. In a dynamic, fast moving sector, where quick response and agile supply chain management is the recipe for success, design has become an increasingly important capability in the search for competitive advantage. The purpose of this chapter is to address the role of design in global supply chain risk management. This chapter recognises the strategic role of product design in global supply chain risk management. It provides a framework for design-led risk management and thus presents a case for recognising design as more than a creative function in the supply chain but as a platform to manage risk in supply chains.

Perspectives in Operations Management pp Cite as. In recent years, there has been increased emphasis on linking the design of products and processes to cost, quality and efficiency measures in manufacturing. The underlying motivation of these concepts is that product costs are largely determined by the design of the product. Hence, functionality and performance are no longer sufficient criteria for excellent design. There are additional important cost and service determinants of product success and profit that go well beyond a narrow definition of manufacturing.
I review principles and methods of global supply chain design from a variety of viewpoints, with special emphasis on processes that have been used successfully in practice. The perspective is focused on the practitioner who is interested in an overview of the key concepts and application of supply chain design within a global context. Unable to display preview.
