"All for one and one for all, united we stand, divided we fall." The classic quote by the Three Musketeers is appropriate to the construction industry and is at the heart of supply chain management. Any discussion of supply chain management requires the term to be defined. While many people use the term, far too often they misuse it. They think of supply chain management in terms of cost or functions such as purchasing, transportation, or warehousing. Unfortunately, that is not supply chain management.
