Role of Information in the Management of the Supply Chain

Management of the supply chain and the relationships within it is dependent on information.  Without information, the synchronization of supply and demand cannot occur.   Various information systems have been developed in order to satisfy the need for faster and more accurate supply chain information.

  • Transaction systems provide rules and procedures that process large volumes of transactions (ERP, order management systems).
  • Management control systems provide reporting and performance measurement tools (financial and reporting packages, dashboards).
  • Relational databases that focus on evaluating and improving supply chain and logistics strategies.
