Efficient supply chain
When considering the efficiency or effectiveness of a supply chain, we’re evaluating each from different perspectives. When thinking about supply chain efficiency, we’re considering what happens within the supply chain system. The supply chain is efficient when we are able to get products at the lowest cost. We also might be looking at how well we are able to coordinate with others in our supply chain for extended manufacturing processes.
When a supply chain is effective, we’re looking from outside the company. Customers are looking at whether they got the right product in the right timeframe to meet their needs. Stakeholders might be looking at how much revenue was generated relative to the cost. Vendors and other business partners might also be looking at how well we were able to solve problems.
