Speaking About Supply Chain Management

I'm an a operation manager in valeo factory. I asked a friend (an engineer working on BMW supply chain in USA). She explained to me that supply chain is more global, it covers the product from its conception, the purchases of materials, to sale, including logistic traffics, and production.

SCM vs Logistics

The definition is correct. To put it more clearly, logistics is part of SCM. SCM also includes the design, demand and sourcing management before the inbound of logistics. And SCM also includes (at the end) the outbound logistics, the distribution, retailing and consumer feedback to the product. Note that it does not intrude into marketing in that it only looks specifically at the technical issues of the product and not to the disciplines of marketing, design and costing.
