The role of supply chain action programs in achieving operational performance excellence

    Abstract

    This paper investigates the effects of five individual supply chain action programs on cost and speed aspects of procurement and manufacturing performance. The study is based on the IMSS-IV database. As should be expected, supply chain action programs have stronger effects on externally oriented (procurement cost and lead time) than on internally oriented performance measures (manufacturing cost and lead time). One surprising finding is that downstream, distribution related, action programs have an effect on upstream performance measures (procurement cost and lead time).
