Globally, Chief Operations Officer or Chief Operating Officer (COO) who is next to the CEO co-ordinate most departments of the organisation. For further clarification it is important to understand that all business processes comprise operations. Supply chain management is a process. There are supply chain processes (as pointed out earlier, each process comprises a set of operations ). These operations may be internal or external. They usually involve some form of co- operation, partnerships and alliances. The focus of operations in supply chains is on customer value, service reliability, cost effectiveness, speed, efficiency and competitive advantage.

According to Dr Olaniyi Opanuga, “operations are deliberate and organised activities, efforts or tasks aimed at achieving specific goals and objectives. It could be machine operations, manual operations or both or other types. e.g. supply chain management is the management of interconnected operations or integration of operations required to ensure that products and services get to the customers as required and for optimum value to all the stakeholders.These operations connect multiple organisations linking primary producers/suppliers with the customers/consumers or end users. Supply chain operations may be local or global”.
