We started our discussion by defining the supply chain as a set of processes for creating and delivering products. Then we moved on to e-supply chains that use information systems to coordinate the processes in SCM. E-Supply chains help improve speed, agility, and customer satisfaction in B2B businesses through the use of new technology. The e-supply chain comprises of five components, namely supply chain replenishment, collaborative planning, collaborative product development, e-procurement and e-logistics. Inter-enterprise integration is the backbone of SCM. The different types of enterprise integration are: responsive supply chains, enterprising supply chains and intelligent supply chains. SCP comprises of advanced scheduling and manufacturing planning modules, distribution planning, demand planning, and transportation planning. SCP is followed by SCE. SCE comprises of order planning, production, replenishment, distribution management, and reverse logistics. The different relationships in a supply chain are: the commodity supplier relationship and the strategic supplier relationship. Companies have to consider a few factors before implementing SCM.
They have to seek answers to the following questions: What is the right supply chain structure for my company? How does the chain enable effective differentiation capabilities? Does my supply chain facilitate effective order fulfillment capabilities? Does my company have the right infrastructure capabilities? The future of e-business is expected to be established through integrated make-to-stock, continuous replenishment and BTO models.
