Supply chain management (SCM) is a systematic approach to manage the seamless flow of information, materials, and services from raw material suppliers through factories and warehouses to the end customer.
SCM involves seamless flow of material, information & finance in a network consisting of customers, suppliers, manufacturers, retailers and distributors.
SCM start with designing & developing new products where Product specifications are created. Few Important applications play major role in this phase.
Oracle Product Life cycle Management

Marketing and Sales generates demand for the Product by publicizing its features and how it would address customer priorities. In the process, Marketing also gets customer feedback and communicates to Product development group. These are application potentially can be used.
Planning is the strategic portion of SCM. You need a strategy for managing all the resources that go toward meeting customer demand for your product or service.

Global Order Promising
Maintain and manage the customer orders, order holds, notes and release the orders to warehouse for fulfillment based on requested date, product availability and customer credit limit.
Here we normally choose the suppliers that will deliver the goods and services you need to create your product. Develop a set of pricing, delivery and payment processes with suppliers and create metrics for monitoring and improving the relationships.
Schedule the manufacturing activities necessary for production, testing, packaging and preparation for delivery.
Work in Process
Coordinate the receipt of orders from customers, develop a network of warehouses, pick carriers to get products to customers and set up an invoicing system to receive payments.
Warehouse Management System
Create a network for receiving defective and excess products back from customers and supporting customers who have problems with delivered products.
Oracle E-Business Suite does covers each area of SCM as discussed above. Here is how best we can describe involvement of all five key participants. Oracle provides two streams to capture entire supply chain planning.
1. Manufacturing: Consists of Inventory, Bills of Material & Work in process to capture details of every type of manufacturing like discrete, batch, mass production.
2. Distribution: Consists of Inventory, Purchasing, and Order Management to capture entire procure to pay & order to cash business processes.
Procure to pay lifecycle captures demands from different applications like Inventory, Order Management, Purchasing & consolidate all demands in the form of requisitions. Requisitions can be optionally converted in to RFQ & Quotations, or else directly converted in Purchase Orders. Approved PO then can be send to suppliers & receipts are generated in different Inventory organizations. Further more Financials applications can be used to capture invoices & process payments for suppliers.
O2C lifecycle starts with entering different types of orders on to customer’s name. Book orders once all relevant scheduling & pricing information of item is reviewed. Booked orders are treated as firm demand to process orders either for manufacturing or fulfilling the demand through supplier networks. Then you pick release & ship confirms these orders to interface data with accounts receivables for further financial transactions.
Oracle Order Management
A lead is an expressed customer interest that a sales agent uses to determine whether there is potential for a after sales service opportunity Leads are intended to capture the initial contact with potential or existing customers, gathering just enough information to tell a sales organization whether there is sufficient interest on behalf of the buyer to make a lead worth following up. Under this Business Process Oracle module can be potentially used.
A company uses sales order history to produce a forecast, design a production, manufacturing, or distribution plan from that forecast, and how to analyze, revise, and simulate changes to that plan.
Advanced Supply Chain Planning
This business flow outlines how a company analyzes or anticipates demand and translates that demand to a production plan.
