Manufacturing companies’ supply chain processes still operate independently and mostly fragmented compared to other areas of the organization. Our research has shown a decrease in spending on supply chain automation systems and a continued lack of performance-centric investments that can help drive better synchronization between financial, operational and supply chain planning. Unfortunately, the lack of leadership and education by large supply chain management vendors (such as I2, Oracle, SAP) on Supply Chain Performance Management and the industry’s continued focus on automation will not help organizations improve operational performance. Ventana Research believes organizations looking to optimize their supply chain with customer demand and financial targets should examine adopting Supply Chain Performance Management.
