Because the shipper's assignment problem involves a combinatorial number of choices and cannot be easily executed manually, the procurement process benefits strongly from the use of optimization. Wanting to measure everything, there is a tendency to measure too much. Considering the complexity within the logistics processes in terms of the number of process variants, we suggest a segmentation of the whole process into process modules which can be combined flexibly to represent the implemented processes on-site. For the right level of management 3. While substantial financial and human resources have been spent on doing this, there has been little sign of realized benefits. Total operating cost and also cost per car, as some may have higher maintenance costs.
Delivery In Full On Time. The first part of the project has contained a search for and structuring of quantitative methods applicable to the field of logistics performance. While not specifically developed for supply chain performance measurement, Balanced Scorecard principles provide excellent guidance to follow when doing it. The main objective in logistics should be the overall coordination. The second part of the paper includes a brief discussion on how the measurement system should be incorporated in a strategic review process in the company.
The proposed modular performance measurement system can be designed in line with the processes, resulting in a consistent performance measurement system for the whole logistics chain and offering the potential for a supply chain-wide roll-out while, at the same time, covering site-specific processes in a standardized way. Figure summarises our evaluation results. On the other hand, our observations also confirmed the research of Lohmann et al. Or to be more strict, if the business works day time hours only, like 9-5, maybe just use a % of that time. These were classified as either effectiveness measures or efficiency measures. Based on assessment done using these measures good performance is rewarded. It allows an organization to avoid obsolete inventory, sales execution problems and poor forecasts Bower, 2005.
A simplified leanness evaluation metric consisting of both efficiency and effectiveness attributes of manufacturing performance has been developed for continuous evaluation of lean implementation. Disadvantages of an applied system were severe, especially in a supply chain context. The focus is on day to day transactions to implement predetermined program. Within the lean dimension, the main objective is an increased flow of the material. While conducting an optimization analysis is an intuitively appealing method for determining performance targets, it is not always the easiest to do. Pick one important area first, and make a start. Furthermore, future application potentials and development needs are summarised.
This work has elaborated economically-mathematical models of forming production program with homogenous product taking into account market demand, average labor of product, transferred mature product stocks, free store volume and other basic resources, realized with both own means and credit under simple interests, allowing optimal coordinating material flows and presenting enterprise financial resources in considered plan time. It is a reflection of logistical performance as this indicates the resources expended to meet specific operating objectives. Most of the time no action is taken. It is vital that a performance metric on which business decisions are made should measure important data. This study was exploratory in nature, and the data were collected through interviews conducted with executives involved with this topic in these companies using a semi-structured questionnaire. Organizational performance can be defined as the harmony of the perfections of personnels and the qualities and requirements of jobs and tasks or benchmarking of the targets expected from the personnels and the results or successes they reach. In the course of my consulting activity, I come across this issue repeatedly.
Parts availability, picks per labour hour, cost per order processed. Furthermore, they point out improvement directions, thus enabling continuous improvement. Frequently, in looking at productivity-related metrics an increase represents an improvement; similarly, for cost-related metrics a decrease represents an improvement. It contains a user friendly library of well-documented performance measures. Milk-run processes are also superior in fulfilment of the cost—delivery frequency trade-off. He implemented programs that were aimed at working more closely with customers on joint store-level planning and in-store merchandizing.
While offering a selection of possible metrics, the authors do not elaborate on the selection of critical metrics in terms of lean assessment. By so doing, we aimed to provide an overview of the company-wide objectives shared throughout our case-study company. Measurement is concerned with detection of trends and exceptions. The need for further research can be seen in the evaluation and roll-out to non-vehicle manufacturing sites, e. It also requires a continued investment in the success of each party, based on a strategic and systemic perspective of the interdependencies and potential of the alliance. In which terms could we measure this.
As a result of this, performance evaluation is not only rating of the staff as individuals but also valuation of the organization or the project team that each personel belongs. The authors derive questionnaires from lean principles and the assessment focuses on the extent of the lean-compliance of the applied manufacturing system. Over time, we expect vendors to offer more complete packaged applications for supply chain performance measurement. Thus, while there a variety of ways in which to set performance targets, they should always be jointly set in the context of strategic objectives.

Measured in this context only, Logistics personnel tend to keep inventories low and batch customer orders to ensure that trucks are shipped full and picking operations are minimized.
Forty-eight percent do not capture invoice accuracy. Correct information in this context includes, e. This behavior results in purchasing excess, potentially low quality, raw materials. A review of the literature reveals a variety of constraints which make it difficult to draw broad inferences from the literature about the relationship between a given logistics strategy and performance. Section describes the evaluation phase in detail. Debtor days, Cash at Bank, Current Ratio….
To enable the interpretation of data, next to cost monitoring, the main cost drivers from a logistics effort perspective are linked, e. In addition, the approach considers the material flow, but, does not provide a perspective on the information flow. The participants are distributed across all levels of hierarchy, from operative level up to logistics management of the different sites. Activity based performance measures indicate efficiency and effectiveness of first level efforts in the process of customer satisfaction. His ideas for time and motion studies of operations were successfully used to scientifically manage production lines and warehouse operations. Invoice Accuracy was reported to be third in importance for the Company, sixth in importance for the Customer, and eighth in importance for the Logistics function. What are key measures of performance of logistics? This paper presents the concept of optimization-based procurement for transportation services.
