The Supply Chain This is the process of how things get to consumer  “concept to consumer” o Design process determines the concept  The production process turns concept into a product Traditional Supply Chain 1. Raw materials (what do you need) : natural, manufactured 2. Intermediary producer – turns fibers into fabric 3. Manufacturer (components + design concept = final product) 4. Distributor (buys from producer → sell to retailer) 5. Retailer “end user” (sells to final consumer) 6. Consumer – buys product to use  Steps are separate  Each segment produced “final product” which was sold to the next segment Changes in Supply Chain  Became more integrated o Vertical integration: A company operates at more than one stage in the production process  Greater control over process 1. Forward: company extends its operations into later stages a. Ex. Fiber producer acquires fabric making abilities 2. Backwards: company extends operations into a previous stage (more control) a. Ex. Fabric producer adds fiber production  Steps may be skipped “scrambled chain” Many companies follow the traditional chain Some are integrated and do multiple steps All results in getting the concept to the consumer
