Supply chain management is a practitioner-generated discipline, which has gained much popularity in the last two decades. Adopting a supply chain perspective also involves the address of structural decision criteria relating to capacity, size and location of supply chain activity, the “supply chain” typified by a network of independent firms. As a result, it becomes important to address macro-institutional constraints, especially in any supply chain perspective because of the inherent global scope of supply chain operations.
