Commodity Management: Drilling into the Supply Chain and the Technology Landscape [PRO Content]
My colleague Jason Busch penned an excellent piece on commodity management last week. I wanted to dive into some of the details around that and its relation to the broader supply chain, but also the different solution approaches being used to tackle it. In the value-chain mega chart below (which basically follows a design > source > plan (supply) > deliver (inbound) process flow from left to right), I’ve outlined the various processes (brown rectangles) and some supporting solution types (blue ovals) for commodity management. PRO members, click through to see the graphic in all its glory – plus way more on how commodity management touches on many aspects of supply chain/procurement (and is supported by fragmented solution types).
