Pareto Analysis: Pareto analysis is a formal technique useful where many possible courses of action are competing for attention. In essence, the problem-solver estimates the benefit delivered by each action, then selects a number of the most effective actions that deliver a total benefit reasonably close to the maximal possible one.

Procurement: Procurement is the process of finding and agreeing to terms, and acquiring goods, services, or works from an external source, often via a tendering or competitive bidding process. Procurement is used to ensure the buyer receives goods, services, or works at the best possible price when aspects such as quality, quantity, time, and location are compared.

Purchase Price Variance (PPV) : Purchase Price Variance represents the difference between the actual price and the standard price, multiplied by the quantity purchased. The formula is: Purchase Price Variance = (Actual Price – Standard Price) x Actual Quantity.

Strategic Procurement: Strategic procurement, also known as strategic sourcing, refers to the long-range plan to ensure a timely supply of goods and services that are critical to an organization's ability to meet its core objectives. For a truly strategic procurement process, the entire organization must be involved.

Supply Chain: A supply chain is a network between a company and its suppliers to produce and distribute a specific product to the final buyer. The supply chain also represents the steps it takes to get the product or service from its original state to the customer.

Supply Chain Management: In commerce, supply chain management, the management of the flow of goods and services, involves the movement and storage of raw materials, of work-in-process inventory, and of finished goods as well as end to end order fulfillment from point of origin to point of consumption.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) : Total cost of ownership is a financial estimate intended to help buyers and owners determine the direct and indirect costs of a product or system. It is a management accounting concept that can be used in full cost accounting or even ecological economics where it includes social costs

Value Analysis: The systematic and critical assessment by an organization of every feature of a product to ensure that its cost is no greater than is necessary to carry out its functions.
