Supply Chain Network Mapping is a process to create an end-to-end map that yields the connections, relationships, and dependencies between internal manufacturing and partner supplier sites. It is a critical factor in acheiving supply chain visibility by identifying the multiple sub-tiers of an end-to-end supply chain. Supply chain network mapping should document the factors that can affect operations such as:

  • Supply chain partners with the highest spending levels affecting major value flows
  • Dependencies and interdependencies (including utilities and other critical infrastructure)
  • Single source suppliers
  • Upstream and downstream partners
  • Logistics, storage and transportation
  • Labor suppliers
  • Contractual and compliance requirements
  • Visibility
  • Sensitive internal information
