Logistics and Supply Chain..
If your company sells a thing to a customer, your company most likely has a supply chain. And that supply chain impacts almost every other business function.
How can Sales sell without Supply Chain supplying products?
How can Finance calculate the cost of goods (and your profitability) without Supply Chain managing supplier and manufacturing costs?
How can Research and Development research and develop new products without Supply Chain sourcing new components?
I could go on and on.
But what are supply chain and supply chain management? Supply chain management isn't just the management of products — it's also the management of information, time and money.
