After reading this book, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What is Operations and Supply Chain Management and why is it important?
  • What are the key functions within this field, and how do they interact with one another and the broader business?
  • What are the responsibilities and decisions that managers in each functional area think about?
  • How will disruptions in the Supply Chain impact the business world and our lives?

Have you ever wondered what your peers meant by "Supply Chain" or "Operations", or why either of these fields matter? What about people that work in these roles - what do they actually do? In Operations and Supply Chain Management Essentials, these questions and more will be answered.

This useful guide uses a hypothetical company and the consumer product they make, to explain how the various functions within the Supply Chain intertwine to bring a finished product to life for consumers in the market. You will understand the story of how new demands, changing preferences, and unforeseen circumstances force this fictional company to adapt in order to survive. Through this book, you will understand and appreciate how these activities, including logistics and warehouse management, make everyday products and services available at our disposal - and why this is increasingly important for companies to pay attention to. The simple format and non-technical language of this book will attract even laypersons looking for a quick, comprehensive overview of supply chain management.
