Title:Supply Chain Management: Assessing Costs and Linkages in the Wheat Value Chain
End Date:May 1996


The objective of this study was to compare firm-level strategic decision information with integrated supply chain data for grain elevators, flour mills, and bakeries. The term "supply chain" refers to all component firms within a particular industry. For example, the wheat products supply chain consists of farmers, elevators, mills, and bakeries. In this study a model was developed to first, evaluate the information requirements for coordinating the wheat supply chain, and second, evaluate the costs of supply chain strategies.
