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

'Customer Satisfaction or values' and to accomplish this, all
barricades are eliminated between ultimate customer values and the raw
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.

Customer Value is the satisfaction of customer
requirements at the lowest total cost of acquisition, ownership, and
