Closure Note
Supply Chain Management (SCM) was once a "pie in the sky" concept that could not be fully achieved. A key barrier was the cost of communicating with and coordinating among the many independent suppliers in each supply chain. SCM is possible because of three changes: Technology has developed that simplifies communication. New management paradigms have developed that are shared among supply chain members. coordination efforts. and the development of a highly trained workforce .
