The Supply Chain is not a business function, it is a network of companies and Supply Chain Management is the implementation of cross-functional relationships with key customers and suppliers in that network. It is a new business model necessary for an organization's success and every function needs to be involved. Management must recognize that the ultimate success of an organization depends on the ability to integrate the company's network of business relationships in a mutually beneficial way. The management of this network of relationships is supply chain management. Successful supply chain management requires cross-functional integration within the firm and across the network of firms that comprise the supply chain. It is focused on the improvements in performance that result from better management of key relationships. By understanding the supply chain management processes and how they should be implemented, management will better understand the value of more integrated supply chains and how this integration will lead to increased shareholder value and a sustainable competitive advantage. Entire network of entities, directly or indirectly interlinked and interdependent in serving the same consumer or customer. It comprises of vendors that supply raw material, producers who convert the material into products, warehouses that store, distribution centers that deliver to the retailers, and retailers who bring the product to the ultimate user. Supply chains underlie value-chains because, without them, no producer has the ability to give customers what they want, when and where they want, at the price they want. Producers compete with each other only through their supply chains, and no degree of improvement at the producer's end can make up for the deficiencies in a supply chain which reduce the producer's ability to compete. Objective of this thesis is to evaluate supply chain management of Kallol Enterprise Limited. Is Kallol maintaining the process and procedures of SCM to go to its goal or to achieve its business objective? If so how? If not, why? What will be suggestions for maintenance of SCM? The focus in the thesis is only on KEL in the Supply chain. This company is managing its Supply chain based on what is best for their own. Collaboration with other companies in the Supply chain will present win-win situations for this company and for other companies in the Supply chain.
