    4. International Trade Patterns and the Global Supply Chain
    International Trade Patterns is the journey of the mining of the diamond to the retail store. To keep the cost of the diamond competitive, that journey must be as efficient and orgainzed as possible. The term supply chain comes from a picture of how organizations are linked together, as viewed from a particular company. The main theory behind supply chain management is to manage the information, materials and services from raw materials, suppliers through factories and warehouses to the end consumer. From our Week 5 discussion, International Trade depends on who is involved and the benefits, if any, for countries involved. This section explains where the raw matierals originate and who are the suppliers for the diamonds. (Jacobs, Chase, Aquilano Operations & Supply Management, pg. 18, 358 12th ed)
