The principles behind supply chain management focus on developing seamless flows of raw materials, products/services, information, and financial capital. The supply chain starts at the initial design process and includes raw material sourcing, logistics and continues through the delivery of that product or service to the end customer, with a goal of creating customer satisfaction at optimal cost.
