The levels of competitiveness in different business sectors mean that the functions of Supply Chain Management (SCM) must be more integrated, efficient and must add value to the customer.
In BDO we understand Supply Chain as the sequence of business processes (value chain), which satisfies the customer's demand for a product and / or service. These business processes encompass the functions of the product and innovation lifecycle, management of the supply chain, planning, purchase and procurement, manufacturing, warehouse management and stock optimization, distribution logistics, and customer service management.
Supply chain management poses important challenges for organizations such as: optimizing inventory, reducing waste of resources, reducing the cost of operations and improving the relationship with suppliers.
