    Hi suman,

    I don't know much about the industry to give feedback.
    But, do you mind clarifying what you mean by supply chain; I suspect it will be different per industry.

    I would like to know about the supply chain tactics and Why is supply chain about much more than merely cost reduction?

    Supply chain is a process, any innovation in its improvement will result in cost reduction.

    No one person is responsible for end-to-end delivery; so, Supply Chain Management (SCM) is really about reducing the friction through and between every stage of product life-cycle. SCM is about managing the flow of information/material from supplier to customer.

    SCM needs to consider contingency plan, resource planning, environment (competitive, economic, legal), feedback loop, early supplier involvement, training, to name a few..

    Start by creating an end-to-end flow-chart the product delivery, and then iron the wrinkles in the process.
    Sometimes it is better to start with easy hanging fruits for quick win; and others it is better to iron-out the largest pain-point first.
