Supply Chains Operating Performance
A Financial Approach to Measurement
Reduction of costs is a necessary but short term approach to improving performance of your Supply Chains. But to gain recognition of value to the enterprise requires financial measures that boards of director and CEOs recognise.
This eBook outlines the four financial measures of value for Supply Chains – Operations:
1. Supply Chains Working Capital
2. Cash to Cash cycle time
3. Supply Chains Value Added (VA)
4. Supply Chains Return on Invested Capital (SC-ROIC)
The eBook shows how these metrics become part of a comprehensive portfolio of measures which define the value of Supply Chains. Use the proposal in your organisation and in business courses to test the approach and to start changes and improvements to the measurement of performance for your Core Supply Chains.
