Supply chains are not a one size fits all solution to all products. Different sectors have their unique market expectations, competition, and customer base. Companies operate at different levels and often have their niche spot for their product. They also have their target audience, as well as a loyal customer base. The rat race to get one’s product to dominate the market is no longer unidirectional or straightforward.
Due to these circumstances, Supply Chain Management is at a different stage where a variety of strategies have to be employed for various products. The implementation of technology in planning, the use of streamlined production methods, the alignment of business goals with production and marketing, etc. has made this even more diverse. The current world of Supply Chain Logistics requires many variables to be considered to find the optimal strategy and demand responsiveness.
