From the Paper:

"There are six essential factors of production chain management and seven components. The six essential factors are consumer demand, information and communication technologies, globalization, competition, government regulations, and environmental concerns. As for the seven components, these include suppliers, procurement, manufacturing, order management, transportation, warehousing, and customers. All of these are significant and important, because they work with one another and tie into each other very strongly. If there is a breakdown in one of these areas, other areas are affected by it."
