Kevin O’Marah, Senior Vice President for AMR Research defines what is meant by Supply Chain Management while coming up with this report.

Our definition of SCM is broad, including not just supply management functions like sourcing, logistics, and manufacturing, but also demand management functions like forecasting, pricing, and service as well as product management functions like new product launch and innovation. Some call this broader definition Value Chain, which is in fact the name of AMR Research’s Advisory Service offered to clients looking for research, expert advice, and peer networking around these topics. The AMR Research Top 25 calls out companies that are leading in this area.
