What is supply chain management?
Supply Chain management service is a systematic process of inspection and certification of components and processes at various phases of a project like procurement, construction and commissioning. To mitigate the challenges thrown by globalisation, changing customer expectations and regulatory requirements, supply chain provides a solution based approach to various aspects of project management.
Why is supply chain management important?
Globalisation has led to an increase of cross-border sourcing, changing the focus to specialisation and the outsourcing of non-core activities. Many supply chains are spread across countries. The workload for specialised organisation has also increased by many folds. End customers, buyers/EPCs and suppliers are located at different places with different work cultures and time zones. End customers now expect to have high technology and quality products delivered to them in a shorter period of time, at optimum cost.
With the reduction in project construction costs and duration, and increase of safety and regulatory requirements, it complicates the risk faced by the buyers. Buyers need to ensure that quantity and quality of goods they receive is consistent with specifications and very specifically in case of overseas suppliers. Buyer can’t bear repair, rework and delay. Buyer wishing to take advantage of the price benefit of global market must ensure quality conformity in order to maintain value of their brand.
