Supply chain management is the process of moving the right thing to the right place at the right time – and at the right cost. To produce a product a plan needs to be put in place, from procurement, through manufacturing, to delivery. The coordination of these processes is known as the “supply chain”, and is vital to an organization’s competitive advantage. An individual involved in supply chain management is responsible for managing the flow of products through the supply chain from start to finish.
Statistics Canada data indicates that the supply chain sector is expanding. More than 700,000 people work in some aspect of supply chain management in Canada today. According to The Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council Human Resources Update Study, “from 2012-2017, it is anticipated that there will be an additional 65,979 new and vacant supply chain positions per year for the next five years, equaling a total of 356,747 positions.”
