How Supply Chain Management Decisions Impact Customer Values

Supply Chain Management decisions have rendered significant concern in recent years for a number of reasons. Directors in many manufactures now realize that activities taken by one member of the supply chain can determine the profitability of all others in the chain. Many international commercial enterprise researchers are of the belief that expanded globalization of markets and increasing international competition mean that firms in all nations will face like, if not identical, competitive environments. Many manufacturing companies are forced to improve the quality of their Chain Management decisions, products and reduce their manufacturing costs.

The main target of Supply Chain Management decisions is 'Customer Satisfaction or values' and to accomplish this, all barricades are eliminated between ultimate customer values and the raw material supplier.

Research in Supply chain management decisions has identified twelve distinct management areas that are affiliated with the subject. Each area comprises a supply chain issue facing the firm.

The twelve categories are:

  • Location

  • Transportation and logistics

  • Outsourcing and logistics alliances

  • Sourcing and supplier management

  • Marketing and channel restructuring

  • Inventory and forecasting

  • Service and after sales support

  • Reverse logistics and green issues

  • Product design and new product introduction

  • Information and electronic mediated environment

  • Metrics and incentives

  • Global issues

  • Customer Value is the satisfaction of customer requirements at the lowest total cost of acquisition, ownership, and use. It's achieved when demands are met fully, reliably, and cost effectively. In today's economic system of dynamic technical, financial, and competitive change, ensuring Customer Value demands impact the most timely and flexible Supply Chain Management decisions.
