Measuring the Supply Chain Outside Your Enterprise


Since supply chains, by definition, are about the end-to-end inter-enterprise process, we highlight the growing importance of looking outside your four walls when thinking about supply chain performance management. If you are overwhelmed by the number of supply chain measures you are tracking, it’s better to focus your energies on a few that can have a significant impact.

This is a complex challenge that creates the classic bullwhip effect for two reasons: first, given the degree of outsourcing in the electronics industry, in many cases the total lead time can stretch over 25 weeks (or 6 months) across the entire supply chain. Second, short Read More
