"Businesses don't compete; supply chains compete"
It is true that today the competition is no longer between companies; it is between supply chains. The knowledge of supply chain management is therefore very important. Supply chain management is actually the integration of the activities that procure materials and services, transform them into intermediate goods and final products, and deliver them through a distribution system. Supply Chain Management (SCM) is therefore an essential element to operational efficiency. SCM impacts customer service by making sure the right product assortment and quantity are delivered at right locations in a timely fashion. Business professionals who want to make a significant impact on the efficiency, effectiveness or profitability of their organizations should consider learning about supply chain management and its value for companies operating in a competitive global marketplace. It is in this context, PDC-NUST has designed a professional diploma program in supply chain management for industry professionals.
