Supply Chain Management plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective forward and reverse flow and storage of goods, services, and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customers' requirements. It represents a key bundle of resources that can help to achieve the objective of providing the "best comparative net value for the customer". In effect, this formally recognizes the fact that customer value can be created through the provision of elements of customer service such as product availability, sales and operations planning, timely and consistent delivery, and easy ordering.
Given the extraordinary emphasis on time based competition in today's business environment, it is not unusual that supply chain services are fast becoming recognized as an essential element of customer satisfaction in a growing number of product and service markets. In effect, Supply Chain Management represents one of the principal ways to achieve maximum responsiveness to customer needs.
