Director’s Message

C. SubbakrishnaC. Subbakrishna
National President, IIMM

Supply Chain Management is an important business function of an organization. It looks after the activities of purchasing, moving and storing material in an optimum way with a view to minimise costs of inventory, purchasing, material handling and distribution. Its objectives are to minimize the cost of acquisition, minimize cash tied up in inventory and maintain high inventory turnover.

Fairness, competition and economic value are very important in public procurement. To achieve these goals, it is essential to make the procurement processes effective and efficient and include adequate controls to promote competition and minimize the risk of fraud, corruption, waste, and the mismanagement of public funds.

Procurement encompasses purchasing, materials management, logistics, supply chain management and strategic sourcing.

All these functions call for skill and tact. A business will not be able to survive if the price of procurement of the components of its product is more than the profit it makes on selling the product.

IIMM regularly organizes important industry events which bring together professionals at senior and middle management levels from diverse industries and experts in the field to a common platform. Signature events include NATCOM (held annually at different locations), Asia-Pacific Conference, SCALE (conducted in Bangalore), DISHA(conducted in Mumbai) and SPECTRUM (held at Chennai), SCOOPR at Delhi.

The ‘Centre for Research in Materials Management’ run by IIMM at Kolkata in collaboration with The Indian Institute of Social Welfare and Business Management, the oldest management education centre of the country under the University of Calcutta is functioning as a nodal point for co-ordination and integration of research information in the field of materials management.

Some of the courses are offered in association with Universities and International Professional Institutions while the rest follow IIMM’s own, time-tested well-appreciated, syllabi.
