The management of the supply chain is commonly perceived as lying within fully vertically integrated businesses in which an individual organization monitors the commodity flux and where each part of the channel functions independently of each other. A Supply Chain Management Information System (Supply Chain Management Information System - SCMIS) is user-orientated and prepared to offer knowledge and information analyzing capabilities to assist in a planning, operation, strategic analysis, and decision-making function within a company’s supply network.
In today's industries, the management of the supply chain becomes critical. Many traditional supply chain management schemes, however, cannot achieve equilibrium between different firms and only a few approaches can effectively change the variations of the supply chain. We are currently attempting to integrate process management and supply chain management and have provided a methodology for identifying the implications and implementations of IT in an SCM.
