Continuous improvement in all aspects of the supply chain is necessary to remain competitive in today’s global economy. The traditional adversarial relationship and transactional focus of buyers and suppliers cannot meet this demand for continuous improvement in lead-time, quality and overall supplier performance. As a result, significant changes are occurring in the philosophies and approaches that define the relationship between purchasers and sellers in world-class organizations. Simply put, Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) provides an organizational focus on communicating and collaborating with suppliers on the many steps of the Supply Management process. This focus reduces the lead-time and total cost of acquisition, transportation and possession of goods and services for the benefit of both the buyer and seller. As a result SRM provides a competitive advantage and improved profits.
