At the highest level, supply chain management is the management of all processes performed to satisfy a customer’s order. This definition is sometimes called “Cash to Cash” process which includes distinct functions within a supply chain network. Each of these main functions and their sub-functions must have KPIs in order to for the overall network to constantly improve itself over time. The key to successfully improving the overall supply chain performance is to focus on those areas that are not only under-performing but, also, those that are aligned with the overall supply chain goals and strategy.
PipeChain® solutions allow the organizations to improve the performance of their supply chain gradually by automating new processes and connecting more customers and suppliers over time. With a built-in control panel, subscribers of the network can trace, analyze and monitor the overall health of the supply chain against KPIs. By analyzing this data, companies can prioritize where to make further improvements.
