2.1 literature review:
Supply chain Management can be defined as the flow of material and information in a supply chain to provide the highest degree of customer satisfaction at the lowest possible cost.
Supply chain management requires the commitment of supply chain partners to work closely to coordinate order generation, order taking, and order fulfillment. They thereby create an extended enterprise spreading far beyond the producer 's location.
Supply chain management is applicable in both manufacturing and services organizations as the prime focus revolves around integration of the end-to-end organization, i.e. involving suppliers, suppliers of the suppliers, customers and customers of the customers. A service organization has to deal

Additionally, the paper further tests the relationship between SCMP and supply chain performance measures using structural equation modelling (SEM). Data were compiled and collected from 213 operations and supply chain (SC) heads from leading retail stores in India. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to test the validity of the proposed measurement scale and the relationship is tested using SEM. The results of the research will help the decision makers in the SC/procurement field to understand the importance of the association between SCMP and supply chain performance measures. Statistical tests show that the implementation of SCMP is associated with supply chain performance measures, which leads to overall improvements; moreover, there is a statistically significant association between the five SCMP and eight…show more content…
The study population consists of all food industry firms in Jordan (833). The study sample, it includes all food industry firms in Amman City (121). To achieve the objectives of the study, the causal descriptive analytical method was used. For data collection, data analysis, and testing hypotheses. A questionnaire was used to collect information about study variables which consisted of (50) items. A number of results were reached: there was a significant impact of Supply Chain Integration on Organizational Performance in food industry firms in Amman City at level (α ≤ 0.05), there was a significant impact of Supply Chain Integration on Environmental Turbulence in food industry firms in Amman City at level (α ≤ 0.05), there was a significant impact of Environmental Turbulence on Organizational Performance in food industry firms in Amman City at level (α ≤ 0.05) and there was a significant impact of Supply Chain Integration on Organizational Performance in food industry firms in Amman City under Environmental Turbulence at level (α ≤ 0.05). The study recommended to need for companies under study, enhancing the role of environmental screening of the external environment an ongoing basis to keep pace with technological changes, as well as the competition intensity in the food industry
