Supply chain consists of the following areas: Transport Finance Health, safety & Environment Information Technology Education & Training Human Relations Warehousing Logistics is a logical extension of transportation & warehousing to achieve an efficient & effective goods distribution system.

The thing that may confuse is the difference between the supply chain management and logistics management.

Supply Chain Management: Supply Chain Management is a system of organizations, people, technology, activities, information, and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to a customer.

The story involves an upper class woman, generally a princess or similar high-ranking nobility, saved from a dragon, either a literal dragon or a similar danger, by the virtuous hero (see Damsel in distress).

She may be the first woman endangered by the peril, or may be the end of a long succession of women who were not of as high birth as she is, nor as fortunate.

Most ancient versions depicted the dragon as the expression of a god's wrath: in Andromeda's case, because her mother Cassiopeia had compared her beauty to that of the sea nymphs, and in Hesione's, because her father had reneged on a bargain with Poseidon.

This is less common in fairy tales and other, later versions, where the dragon is frequently acting out of malice.

Logistic Management: Logistics management plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective forward and reverse flow and storage of goods, services and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customer & legal requirements.

Inventory Management: The word “inventory” was first recorded in 1601.

The Japanese legend of Yamata no Orochi also invokes this motif.

The god Susanoo encounters two "Earthly Deities" who have been forced to sacrifice their seven daughters to the many-headed monster.

The grateful citizens then abandon their ancestral paganism and convert to Christianity.
