Supply Chain Management

Performance Management

Performance Improvement and what ACMS Assesses

Supply chain management (SCM) is the management of a network of interconnected businesses involved in the provision of product and service packages required by the end customers in a supply chain. Supply chain management spans all movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption.

Business process integration

One could suggest other key critical supply business processes which combine these processes such as:

  • Customer service management
  • Procurement
  • Product development and commercialization
  • Manufacturing flow management/support
  • Physical distribution
  • Outsourcing/partnerships
  • Performance measurement
  • Warehousing management

Companies normally suffer from a lack of knowledge. ACMS helps make strategic decisions to improve company performance and profitability by providing information and sustainable solutions to management. Executive management must buy in to these improvements and support the changes within the company to ultimately improve it's profitability. Our fees more than pay for themselves in the long term based on saved costs, increased profitability and return on investment.

Management accounting in supply chains (or supply chain controlling (SCC)) is part of the supply chain management concept. This necessitates the need for planning, monitoring, management, and information provision of logistics and manufacturing processes throughout the whole value chain. The goal of management accounting in supply chains is the optimization of these processes. Therefore, this strategy is a form of controlling, focused on the support of management.

One of the main tasks of management accounting in supply chains is the performance measurement. The key elements of strategic goals include the measurement of resources, output and flexibility. Efficient resource management is critical to profitability and without an acceptable output customers will turn to other supply chains. In a changing environment it is also of importance that supply chains are able to respond to change. Selected measures for resource performance are total costs, distribution costs, manufacturing costs, measures about inventory and Return on Investment (ROI). Exemplary outcome performance measures are numbers of items produced, time required to produce, customer satisfaction or product quality, which is very difficult to be expressed numerically. At least, reductions in the number of backorders, increased customer satisfaction or the ability to accommodate demand variations are advantages associated with flexibility.

Please note that every company is different and will have different processes. A proposal for the identified work to be performed is put together by ACMS with a fixed quote for the work to be performed. A detailed meeting will then be held to put the proposal into action and once the plan has been approved by Management, ACMS will start the process.

Have a look at what we assess in order to get to your proposal (on the right) for a more detailed understanding of the level of expertise that we can go into.
