From MIT:

"Integrated Supply Chain Management (ISCM) is a process-oriented, integrated approach to procuring, producing, and delivering products and services to customers. ISCM has a broad scope that includes sub-suppliers, suppliers, internal operations, trade customers, retail customers, and end users. ISCM covers the management of material, information, and funds flows."
