Elk Grove Village Supply Chain Careers
What Is Supply Chain Management?
Supply chain management is a broad term that refers to the handling of goods and services throughout the process of taking raw materials and turning them into final products. The term was invented by the US Military to get raw materials to the front-line of battle fields. This concept has transferred over to manufacturing over the past 20+ years. Effective supply chain management allows companies to eliminate excess costs and deliver final products quickly and efficiently. Careers in supply chain management are often broken down into seven different areas: fulfill, order, plan, source, analyze, transform, and orchestrate. As such, your Elk Grove Village supply chain career can be focused on just one of these areas or a combination of a few.
