What is Operations & Supply Chain?
Leading companies rely on operations and supply chain professionals to create high quality products and services while minimizing wastes to reduce costs. They are ultimately responsible for running the business efficiently and profitably. It may take a village to raise a child but it takes over 200 companies in numerous countries and on several continents to make a high quality smart phone. Similarly, to treat a patient it often takes a complex network of providers including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, insurance companies, and other entities. These networks are called supply chains. The role of supply chain management is to help optimize the firm’s supplier/customer network to create an outstanding product or service.
