E-business is a collection of business models and processes motivated by Internet technology. Its focus is on the improvement of extended enterprise performance. E-business can help firms to share information across the supply chain and respond to changes in a range of variables like customer demand, and shortages at customer and supplier levels etc. Using e-business, can implement supply chain concepts more effectively.
Later we looked at the impact from a cost perspective. Some of the cost minimization opportunities brought about by e-business are reduction in handling, processing and facility costs, improvement in information flow, possibility for movement of digital goods and scope for product differentiation postponement. Then we examined various types of e-business applications that are used in supply chain operations.
There are three key types of e-business applications: e-commerce, e-procurement, and e-collaboration. E-commerce is concerned with the order fulfillment process where the applications help in coordinating activities among the trading partners in order to fulfill the customer demand.
E-procurement enables the purchasing of the components and raw materials over the Internet. E-collaboration enables the firm to share information among the supply chain members. Finally we looked at the process of implementing the e-business proposition.
