Supply Chain Performance Measurement
The growing importance of the management of supply chains has motivated researchers and practitioners to develop and implement measures that can be used to establish supply chain performance. The measurement of supply chain performance requires the creation of an inter-organisational assessment system. Such systems can feasibly be used to identify opportunities for improved supply chain efficiency and competitiveness, to help understand how companies operating in supply chains affect each other’s performance, to support the supply chain in satisfying consumer requirements and to assess the result of an implemented initiative.
