Supply Chain Controlling

Monitoring of SC processes

Continuous monitoring of the supply chain and all partners involved ensures that all planning, procurement and production processes run as smoothly as possible. Key performance indicators for the supply chain are defined, ascertained at regular intervals and assessed upon the basis of the SCOR model.

Based upon these key performance indicators, J&M develops supply chain balanced scorecards specifically tuned to the situation in your company which are then used to monitor the supply chain processes. If any discrepancies arise, so-called "supply chain detectives" investigate the causes for the deficits in the supply chain on a case to case basis across all sections and take specific measures to rectify the defects they find.

As a result, potential problems in the supply chain can be recognized early on and avoided in future thanks to coordinated measures for improvement.

Benefits of Supply Chain Controlling

  • Reduced costs as problems in the supply chain are recognized and the appropriate measures set in motion early on.
  • Lasting increase in customer satisfaction due to increased transparency and ability to react.
  • Increased efficiency due to the optimal coordination of all supply chain processes.
  • Competitive advantage due to the systematic recording and controlling of the complex relationships in the supply chain network.
  • Development of the supply chain controlling concept

J&M develops for and with its clients company-specific supply chain controlling concepts, embedded in the underlying supply chain strategy.
