Supply Chain Course Online

The various processes and parties involved in supplying any given business with the core products/materials it needs to get the job done represent important links in the supply chain.  From the moment raw materials are harvested to factory processing and manufacturing right through to the eventual purchase of the item, it is the supply chain that gets products into the hands of the end user.  Unsurprisingly, the average business supply chain can be extremely complicated and demanding, in terms of control and management.  Supply chain managers play a critically important role in overseeing each and every link in the chain, ensuring it is not only doing its job, but serving its purpose efficiently and reliably.
