A supply chain is a network of facilities and distribution options that performs the functions of procurement of materials, transformation of these materials into intermediate and finished products, and the distribution of these finished products to customers. Supply chains exist in both service and manufacturing organizations, although the complexity of the chain may vary greatly from industry to industry and firm to firm. Supply chain connects the purchasing and selling process from different vendors. The system maintains purchase and selling process in various branches and incorporating the pattern discovery techniques in the SCM dataset, future demands for materials can be easily predicted.
