Conference paper


For many years companies managed their logistical processes in procurement, production and distribution functionally and organizationally independently of one another. This focuses of investigation in designing logistical processes have been displaced, because of increasing competition, advances in information technology and the onset of globalization. Meanwhile many companies and especially global players have gone over to adjusting these processes to one another and to their suppliers and customers to opening up new business fields and value-added stages. We refer to this adjustment as supply chain management.
