The supply chain is a complex system with finite, and non-linear relationships between supply chain metrics that drive balance sheet results. We find that companies can improve one, but not two of the metrics. Teams struggle to drive improvement in both metrics at the same time. In our recent analysis of supply chains that are “working well” , we find higher performance when companies have source, make and deliver reporting to the supply chain organization.
