What is Industrial Supply Chain Management?

Industrial supply chain management can be defined as the systematic approach to the flow of products/services from raw materials, to manufacture, through storage, and shipment/delivery to the end consumer.  Everything from the beginning of the process, all the way through purchase, is considered supply chain management. This also includes the product design, planning, execution, and optimization of the entire process.  System maintenance is also included in supply chain management.

The Tri-State Industrial Alliance helps companies on both a local and global scale increase efficiency, cut costs, and ultimately increase profits through our enterprise-level industrial supply chain management services.

Industrial supply chain management is nothing more than a strategic plan to ensure quality and prompt delivery of a product/service, reduce waste, and boost profits. 

Why are Industrial Supply Chain Management services important?

As for supply chains for the services industry, they hold many differences from the supply chain of manufacturing of goods and products. Although they both have inputs, in the manufacturing industry and the service industry there must be labor completed to process everything required to give the end consumer what they need or want. Besides doing internal labor, they will both require suppliers to carry out various roles to help obtain the end result. There is one main difference and it lies in the costs of manufacturing industry that include transporting, storing and manipulating a physical material. In most cases, the service industry will include the manipulation of information and networking. This will change greatly the capital investments in physical equipment and machinery that the manufacturing industry will have, as opposed to a software and hardware infrastructure.

One of the biggest changes to supply chain management is the integration of technology: See Internet of things, related article, etc.

The integration of technology has enabled industrial supply chain management to become much more efficient, which is highly critical because the industrial supply chain includes manufacturing, which has higher costs associated to reach the end result.

The manipulation, transportation, and storage of a product lead to increased operating costs, putting increased importance on efficiency of an industrial supply chain.
