It typically involves not only the placing of orders, but also costing / estimating, order confirmation and expediting, re-sourcing and the monitoring of supplier performance.
Focus on such day-to-day activities and ensuring product is available at the appropriate time is not always consistent with obtaining the best pricing and this can have a negative affect on the competitiveness of a business. In addition to this, activity levels can be hugely unpredictable and difficult to manage, leading to insufficient resources during busy periods and too much during quieter times.
