Supply Chain Management 2 Abstract The concepts ‘supply chain’ and ‘supply chain management’ have a variety of different meanings. This differentiation is a reflection of the fact that these terms emerged from the world of commerce and that most research conducted to date has been applied rather than theoretical. There has not been an attempt to find a common thread through the research findings and arguments. In most cases research findings and conclusions are important only within the context of their study and their ability to be generalized is limited. Although there have been attempts to define conceptual frameworks for supply chains most of these frameworks are specific rather than general in scope. Therefore, can further research into supply chains and supply chain management benefit by an abstraction from the real world to identify more fundamental and presumably more generic, features of supply chains and activities of supply chain management? The answer to this question forms the central focus of the discussion outlined in the rest of this paper.
