Executive Summary
Every organization, big or small, depends on materials and services from other organizations to varying extents. Various materials used as inputs, such as raw materials, consumables & spares, are required to be purchased and made available to the shops / users as & when needed to ensure uninterrupted production. Therefore, efficient management of input materials is of paramount importance in a business organization for maximizing materials productivity, which ultimately adds to the profitability of the organization. Labour as a factor of production plays very crucial role in the company’s success. The quality of labour can make or break an organisation. In many manufacturing organisations, the cost of materials alone happens to range from 40 % to 60 % of the total expenditure. Obviously, a better management of material is expected to ensure reduction in overall cost of operation and smoothness in supply of inputs. This requires well coordinated approach towards various issues involving decision making with respect to materials. All the materials related activities such as material planning & indenting, purchase systems & procedure, variety reduction through standardization & rationalization, reducing uncertainties in demand & supply, handling & transportation, inspection, proper storage & issue of materials to the internal customers, inventory management, vendor management & finally disposal of obsolete, surplus & scrap materials etc. taken together is termed as “Supply Chain Management & Logistics”. Supply Chain Management as such is a key business function that is responsible for co-ordination of planning, sourcing, purchasing, moving, storing and controlling materials in an optimum manner so as to provide a pre-decided service to the customer at a minimum cost.
