- About Deakin
Supply chain management is about managing the flow of materials, information and finances as they move from supplier to manufacturer, to retailer, to the end-consumer. It deals with the purchase of raw materials, the process of manufacturing the goods, the storage of the goods, and the delivery of the goods. Operating these functions in an effective and efficient way has become critical as businesses face worldwide competition. Students gain an understanding of the various relationships within supply chain activities.
