Supply chain management includes the determination of suppliers; distributors, distribution channels and warehousing; manufacturing information and manufacturing schedules; capacity requirements and means of order fulfilment; means of finance; means of information handling; credit and cash transfers; methods of accounts payable and receivable; forecasting methods; means of managing customer information.

  • Procurement
