Book Description

Supply chain management, often known as SCM, refers to the extensive variety of operations that are required to plan, monitor, and coordinate the movement of a product from its raw materials to its finished state in the most time- and money efficient manner possible. How the supply chain is managed has an impact not only on the quality of the product and the service but also on distribution, costs, and the overall customer experience. Supply chain management is a massive undertaking that needs firms to reevaluate the method in which they operate their supply chains.

This book discusses the problems and difficulties that the facilitators of the supply chain confront, in addition to the possible solutions to such problems and difficulties. This book will be the only one of its kind to address the impact of COVID-19 on supply chain systems involving different stakeholders such as producers, dealers, and manufacturers, will provide a foundation for future research opportunities that will allow for the unrestricted expansion and prosperity of business. This book will serve as a foundation for academics, scientists, and educationists interested in the use of modern technologies in the field of supply chain management, such as the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain. In addition to those engaged in research, undergraduate and postgraduate students in higher education are also able to use this publication as a reference book. This book would present a multifaceted perspective for the general public, including topics such as computer science, the food business, hotel management, fashion, medical, inventory management, and agricultural spheres.
