Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a term that refers to the management o\f the flow of goods and services from the manufacturer to the final consumer. It involves the movement and storage of raw materials, processes that transform raw materials to finished goods, and final products from the point of origin to the point of consumption.
In the recent years SCM has emerged as a highly collaborative, technology-dependent and sophisticated discipline that encompasses business operations such as buying, functioning, inventory management, logistics, warehousing, and customer service. It is considered as a key determinant of business competitiveness.
Companies seek to enhance their performance by effectively managing their supply chain. These advancements have created a demand for well qualified supply chain managers and other SCM personnel in various sectors. With UAE being reported as a major global logistics hub, more numbers of certified SCM personnel are always absorbed by companies.
