Introduction

As well as goods and services, supply chain managers analyze and manage information from the suppliers, through intermediaries, to the customer'and their customers, if your client is a business.

It includes managing technical processes: both within the firm between functions such as procurement, manufacturing and marketing; and between organizations such as manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers.
