Researching Supply Chains on the Bloomberg Terminal

Supply chains refer to the flow of goods and services, including all the processes that transform raw materials into final product. Firms try to establish secure and efficient supply chains for their products in order to maximize their profitability as well as prevent major disruptions to production. Understanding potential threats to the supply chains of both suppliers and customers is an essential component of risk management. The Commerce Research Library’s primary resource for performing supply chain analysis is the library’s Bloomberg Terminal. There are several Bloomberg functions that deal with aspects of supply chain analysis.
