PROCESS VIEWS OF A SUPPLY CHAIN
A Supply chain is a sequence of processes and flows that take place within and
between different stages and combine to fill a customer need for a product.
There are two ways to view the processes performed in a supply chain.
1. Cycle View: The processes in a supply chain are divided into a series of cycles,
each performed at the interface between two successive stages of a supply chain.
2. Push/Pull View: The processes in a supply chain are divided into two categories
depending on whether they are executed in response to a customer order or in
anticipation of customer orders.
Pull processes are initiated by a customer order, whereas push processes are
initiated and performed in anticipation of customer orders. Cycle View of Supply
Chain Processes Given the five stages of a supply chain as shown in Figure 1-2, all
supply chain processes can be broken down into the following four
process cycles:
• Customer order cycle
• Replenishment cycle
• Manufacturing cycle
• Procurement cycle
