Supply Chain Management

Guide to sources for supply chain management research


Supply Chain Management (SCM) concerns managing and coordinating everything from the selection and purchasing of raw materials to the delivery of the finished product or service. It emphasizes collaboration between internal units in the process chain as well as with external partners, such as suppliers, intermediaries, and customers.   

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
