Growth of Supply Chain Management
This chapter discusses the growth of supply chain management over generations, and blends the role of technology, servitization perspectives, and the speed of delivery as the principal change agents besides the social, cultural, and economic variables. The discussions on economics of supply chain technology, gradual shifts from the conventional distribution systems, supply-chain planning, performance management, and digital disruption and customer value in the context of digital distribution management are central to this chapter. The block-chain strategy as the new generation practice of supply chain management has also been discussed in this chapter.
