Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the organization and implementation of consolidated business processes and procedures across the entire supply chain, from the sourcing of raw materials, to the manufacturing of a product, to the shipping of that product to retail outlets and consumers.
Supply chains are often comprised of dozens of different people, processes and organizations, and because of this, companies rely on SCM software to help them manage and visualize the flow of goods from one end of the supply line to the other.
