Supply chain is a network made by manufacturer and its suppliers to complete a product. The chain means actually the links between multiple suppliers to provide the parts or elements of the
product. Later the product is distributed to warehouses or distribution centers after completion.
Finally the product is sent to stores where a user can buy the product. In short supply chain is a network of companies or departments in an organization.
Each node (manufacturer, supplier, distributor, retailer) have specific position in the chain. The link between nodes is made in a particular order. The product cannot reach to a node without passing from the previous node. The link between nodes add time and cost. Every company can have more than one supply chains for different products. The supply chain is not only just a supporter. But it has become a core component of every existing and new business. A good, fast and efficient supply chain can grow the business.
