Compare and Contrast for Supply Chain Management of Albaik, Almarai and Emirates Airline

Introduction/Background of Supply Chain Management of Albaik, Almarai and Emirates Airline

 There are so many important elements attached to a business organization, but one crucial element is its supply chain management. Regardless of the size of an organization, the supply chain management is critical in so many ways. It is a process where it is ensured that a product has reached its final destination, and customers can purchase it. It would be good to understand the concept with an example. If a company has introduced a new product, which is needed by the customers and they badly want it. The company has done extensive marketing to market the product, and customers have seen so much that now they are eager to buy the product, so they go to nearby shops or stores, etc. to buy the product, but they found it that product is yet not available (Forceintellect, 2018). It means that the supply chain management of the company was failed to deliver the product to its final customers, whereas so many promises were made through advertising. This kind of thing adds a bad taste to customers about a company and so they look for alternative companies, who fulfill their demands. It means that having a product with extensive marketing is not good enough; rather making sure that the product is also reached to its final destination, otherwise, customers won’t be happy with the company (Teeboom, 2018). In this paper, SCM of three companies would be analyzed to review their performance and give some recommendations.

 In some cases, a product demand increases due to its popularity, and then supply should be increased with quick methods so that demand is satisfied, and this can only be done with the help of an effective supply chain management. When demand is increasing and suppliers are asking for more supply in time, then a proper SCM system would allow a company to manage increased demands, because they have good inventory as well as operations along with better logistics. The production units should be informed in time to produce the product as per demand, and once the product is ready, it should be sent to the required sales points as soon as possible. This balance of demand and supply is essential for the success of a company otherwise customers will not be satisfied as I would be a bad experience for them. It is the responsibility of a business organization to make its products available in the market, otherwise, advertising won’t help. So, supply chain management is one of the critical operations of a company to gain long term and sustainable success (Min, Zacharia, & Smith, 2019)
