SCEM (supply chain event management)

Contributor(s): Brenda Cole

Supply chain event management (SCEM) is a type of business software for managing events that occur within and between organizations or supply chain partners.

The goal of SCEM is to keep all users in the supply chain – from materials suppliers and buyers to warehouse managers and product carriers – informed about activity across the supply chain. SCEM applications cover five business processes that are related to supply chain events or activity. These processes are:

  1. )    Monitoring
  2. )    Notification
  3. )    Simulation
  4. )    Control
  5. )    Measurement

SCEM software typically includes functionality for keeping track of event schedules and milestones, as well as exception alerts that notify users from all stages of the supply chain when disruptions or delays occur.
