With the competitive differentiators of cost reduction, quality enhancement and operations’ velocity, the concept of supply chain has replaced that of individual firms. This implies that competition is no longer one firm against other firms but as a part of a supply chain against other supply chains. Consequently, success depends on the ability to improve the overall supply chain performance. In such an effort to optimally manage the entire supply chain, companies face the challenge of deploying new information initiatives that stand promising for streamlining supply chain operations.
