A modelling framework for improving supply chain delivery performance

A modelling framework for improving supply chain delivery performance The evaluation of delivery performan is a crucial component in the overall management and control of a supply chain. The main objective of this research is to develop a framework that can be used to improve the delivery performan of a supplier to the end customer in a supply chain. The framework provides a bound on the financial investment required to make improvement to the delivery pross.

Abstract

The evaluation of delivery performan is a crucial component in the overall management and control of a supply chain. The main objective of this research is to develop a framework that can be used to improve the delivery performan of a supplier to the end customer in a supply chain. The framework provides a bound on the financial investment required to make improvement to the delivery pross. A varian reduction modelling approach is used that directly incorporates the unrtainty in the delivery time distribution into a financial delivery performan metric. The framework is demonstrated using numerical illustrations. Keywords: supply chain delivery performan; varian reduction; pross improvement. Referen to this paper should be made as follows: Ngniatedema, T., Chen, L. and Guiffrida, A.L. (2016) `A modelling framework for improving supply chain delivery performan', Int. J. Business Performan and Supply Chain Modelling, Vol. 8, No. 2, pp.79­96.
