A manager should be highly aware of a supply chain to be able to manage his / her company's operations. There are many definitions of supply chain, and one could be:
Supply chain composes all of stakeholders such as raw material suppliers, accessory suppliers, workers, supervisors, warehouse, logistics, distributors and retailers that involved, directly or indirectly, in delivering a product or service from supplier to end-user.

Figure 1 Supply chain of a Router
Raw material such as IC (Integrated Circuit), PCB (Printed Circuit Board), plastic, paper etc. are purchased and stored in the warehouse. Afterwards they are sent to the lines and assemble to parts. Those parts are called Work-in-Process Goods; they are subsequently sent to the lines to become Finished Goods. After the finished products are certified under a quality check (QC) they are packaged and moved to the warehouse. The warehouse is used as a buffer, which means unsold goods will remain there until transferred to the distributor and retailer.

Demand chain analysis has a larger scope because it focuses on understanding demand of customer or end-user in term of using material and product; and continuously improves the ability to meet market needs of product and service development. Demand chain is linked with logistics; they are spanning to the whole value chain and obviously related closely to supply chain. In other words, customers express the demand to the supply chain and consequently the needed products and services and pulled between entities in the supply chain system.
