28 Logistics Performance Indicators analyze the effect of logistics on company objectives in the four target areas of quality, cost, delivery, and flexibility. Performance Measurement In the following, we introduce a balanced set of global measures from a logistics perspective. also requirement of balanced scorecard.
29 Practical Applicability of Performance Indicators in the Form of Practical Methods (1) Performance Measurement Too general performance indicators: Easily measurable, but: Often general and qualitative in meaning No practical steps can be derived from them without making additional, non-quantitative, and implicit assumptions. Lack of comprehensive measurement methods: Simple, applicable performance indicators often cannot be measured directly. Distortion of the processes: Each measurement affects the process being measured. Customer Satisfaction
30 Practical Applicability of Performance Indicators in the Form of Practical Methods (2) Meaning of the performance indicators: The absolute value of a performance indicator has little meaning as such. Comparability of performance indicators: Benchmarking against competitors has meaning only if the competitor has used the same measurement. Performance Measurement Practical applicability in supply chains: All of the important performance indicators can be applied in the total logistics network as well as in the individual company.
31 Performance Indicators in Operations and Logistics Management Performance Measurement Target area quality Scrap factor (or yield factor) Complaint rate Target area delivery Fill rate or customer service ratio Delivery reliability rate Lot size (batch size) Capacity utilization Value-added rate of lead time Variance in work content Response time Order confirmation time Target area costs Stock-inventory turnover Work-in-process-inventory turnover Work center efficiency Capacity utilization Administration cost rate (such as inventory control, purchasing) Target area flexibility Bid proposal success rate Order success rate Breadth of qualifications Temporal flexibility
32 Performance Indicators in the Target Area of Delivery: Fill Rate and Delivery Reliability Rate (1) Indicator Definition Reason for measuring Reference obj. Fact to measure Fill rate or customer service ratio Number of products delivered on desired delivery date divided by number of products ordered Poor fill rate results in opportunity cost and, depending on contract, penalty costs. a) item, b) business partner, c) part logistics (e.g. sales) For a): item demand, or order position For b) and c): order position or order Performance Measurement Indicator Definition Reason for measuring Reference obj. Fact to measure Delivery reliability rate Number of products delivered on confirmed delivery date divided by number of confirmed products Poor delivery reliability rate results in opportunity cost and, depending on the contract, penalty costs. a) item, b) business partner, c) part logistics (e.g. sales) For a): item demand, or order position For b) and c): order position or order
33 Example: determine the fill rate Performance Measurement Order A: Item 4711: 10 ordered, 10 delivered Item 4722: 20 ordered, 20 delivered Order B: Item 4712: 5 ordered, 3 delivered Item 4711: 2 ordered, 0 delivered Order C: Item 4715: 4 ordered, 3 delivered Item 4711: 3 ordered, 3 delivered Determine the fill rate!
34 Performance Indicators in Operations und Logistics Management Possible Measures Performance Measurement Target area quality Educate employees for specific tasks Target area costs Dismiss employees Reduction of inventories (Lot size 1 ) Target area flexibility Educate employees for different tasks Motivate employees for a more flexible work schedule Communication in the company Group work Target area delivery Layout change Harmonize content of work and processes Customer order forecasting system Decentralized storage Lot size 1 Transportation within company and trans-corporate automate by those employees producing the products
