Supply Chain Management

Almost all products/services that serve the consumer require the efforts of multiple organisations. Collectively, these organisations make up the supply chain. Supply chain management (SCM) is the management of supply chain activities and relationships to maximise customer value and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. Supply chain activities cover everything from product/service development, sourcing and production to logistics, as well as the information systems needed to co-ordinate these activities. There is a demand for SCM graduates due to its growing importance to New Zealand’s export-oriented economy. The growth of e-commerce has also fuelled the demand for SCM graduates worldwide as e-commerce businesses depend on logistics and SCM to fulfil customer orders.
