Tutor description

Performance, Supplier Relationship, Lean production principles, forecasting, and manufacturing plan. As such, certain metrics need to be developed to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the supply chain. Considering that the ultimate intention of any supply chain practices is the consumer, it is plausible that the metrics need to be consumer-oriented (Jacobs & Chase, 2011). From the overall gist of the supply chain, two possible metrics that could be used include the proportion of on-time deliveries to the consumers and the number of product defects. The former may be used to gauge the speed in which the supply chain is carried out and show the smoothness of the process, while the latter shows if the speed of delivery is coupled with quality retention and maintenance of the products
