Course Overview

What is materials and supply chain management? Supply chain management is a wide range of activities essential to plan, control and execute a product’s flow, from raw material procurement, production through distribution to the final customer, in the most cost-effective and streamlined manner possible.

It is the capability that organisations make use of in order to plan total material requirements, which is then communicated to procurement and other functions for sourcing. Supply chain management includes flow alignment, function integration, process coordination, complex system designing, resource management, etc. Materials management includes purchase and contract management, logistics management, stores management, inventory control, scheduling, and supplier relationship management. These functions are extremely critical to meet the desired objectives and contribute to organisational growth and success.
