The National Center for Supply Chain Technology Education provides this 3:31 minute video to introduce viewers to supply chain management. The video highlights what happens when supply chains are not properly managed such as food products going bad, workers wasting time waiting for shipments or working excessive overtime, and trucks wasting fuel by traveling at less than full capacity. All of this can be avoided with effective supply chain managers. [Copyright © 2012 Internet Scout Research Group – http://scout.wisc.edu]
