Keith Willoughby Professor of Finance & Management Science /Edwards School of Business

Supply chains are used for the production, distribution and delivery of items. Supply chain management seeks opportunities to improve the value creation of activities required to transport products, store inventory and satisfy customer demand.

This presentation focuses on supply chain management for nutrition products. Practical insights are provided to illustrate the prominent role played by supply chains in this industry.
