Every asset, information, and process is part of the supply chain. For this Discussion, you will be addressing how the supply chain works and possible issues you may encounter.

Within this complex system, operation management responsibilities can be both strategic and tactical.

  1. Identify the different components of the supply chain for that product or service (list them from beginning to end). Be sure to identify which parts of the supply chain are considered "upstream" and "downstream" exchanges.
  2. Based on what you learned from your research, describe a single current issue that might negatively impact a company's global supply chain.
