Supply Chain Integration
Supply Chain Integration collectively combines all parties involved in the fulfillment of the supply chain tasks into a single, well-defined and highly streamlined governance process. This unification is essential for coordinating Supply Chain activity on a large scale and ensuring a seamless flow of items through the pipeline.
All supply chain networks contain multiple links that perform specific functions. These links must work in perfect synergy to realize a stable, streamlined end-to-end process. The delay in any department will cost the others as well, as the resulting bottleneck throws existing plans into chaos. Often, these departments may even be at odds against each other, further damaging the integrity of the supply chain. Therefore, the end to end supply chain must be integrated into a single streamlined network.
