What is Supply Chain Management?

Supply chain management (SCM) is the management of the flow of goods. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. Previously referred to as “logistics and transportation,” SCM is now the preferred name for this skyrocketing industry.
