Practically any modern industrial manufacture from shipbuilding to oil & gas production use hoses to ensure uninterrupted operation. Like arteries, a variety of liquid forms are pumped through a system of hoses and connections, such as anything from plain water to petrochemicals or chemical reagents. Hoses are often taken for granted as an element that can be easily replaced in case of damage. Consumers may buy a more modern hose instead of an outdated one and change the connection to something more durable. At the same time, few people consider the creation of a ready-to-use product like a hose. However, there is a system designed to manage and coordinate all processes from production to shipment to the end user. This system is called Supply Chain Management (SCM).
