What is Supply Chain Optimisation?
Supply Chain Optimisation is the practice of combining resources in a supply chain with the intent of eliminating bottlenecks and other problems that interfere with the process and helping the supply chain function in a more smooth, timely and cost-effective manner. It addresses the general supply chain problem of delivering products to customers at the lowest total cost and highest profit. This includes balancing the cost of inventory at all points in the supply chain with availability to the customer, minimising total operating expenses of inventory, transportation, distributing and manufacturing, and maximising gross profit of products distributed through the supply chain.
