What is Operations & Supply Chain Management

Operations & Supply Chain Management is looking at business as a whole when comparing expenses and profits. A business won't last very long if the expenses to run it are more than the profits it gains. The production of a company's product requires a lot of communication with suppliers, customers, transportation teams, and separate departments within the company. Suppliers will provide the resources to make the product, customers will provide the order for how much of a product they need, transportation teams will ship the product from the factory to consumers or stores and departments will need to in contact will each other to ensure everything runs smoothly. All of these factors also come at a cost. Operations and Supply Management will consider all components running a business, analyze the financial data, and make improvements where necessary.
