Abstract

This chapter has highlighted the major areas where IT has a significant effect on SC. Brief descriptions were provided as follows:

Some basic factors of communications were considered first, additionally EDI (electronic data interchange), order processing and barcodes.

Main developments in SC planning were thought as those incorporating company-wide information systems, SCM and network strategy.

Looking more closely at the basic logistics elements, the information technology-related aspects of inventory, transport and warehousing were reviewed.

Finally, some other critical aspects were considered, including EPOS systems, internet and e-commerce, integration of Supply Chain Information Technology, and implementation of Decision Support Systems (DSS) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
