Today businesses have necessarily to focus on maintaining efficient relationships with customers and suppliers. This is so because there is a fierce competition among producers and suppliers, and also because of increased expectations of customers. This phenomenon has led to the growth and development of supply chains. Today businesses no longer compete as autonomous entities but rather as supply chains. This book describes the fundamentals of supply chain management and is likely to be of great use to management personnel at various levels.
