Total Cost Management
In order to manage the total cost of ownership--more than just the purchase costs and what you actually pay at the time of transaction--supply chain professionals must develop a keen understanding and control of some of the more unseen costs involved in purchasing. What are the internal business costs for example, and how do usage patterns and processes add to cost? What are some of the joint supplier/customer costs and how much does the way you work with vendors affect costs?
