Transparent data, credible figures, realistic targets, clear responsibilities
To monitor and improve your logistical business model effectively, an intelligible performance measurement system is required. It is possible to set up transparent logistics controlling without a huge business intelligence effort.
A&K will help you to create effective logistics controlling by collaboratively defining the relevant KPIs and establish a flexible and consistent set of basic data, which allows for spontaneous and situational data analysis. We will also assist you in analysing the data quality of your ERP system and build up procedures that will maintain the required level of data quality.
Analysis and simulation tools ensure your ability to continuously monitor, report, share and target your KPIs.
Accelerating market developments and complex supply chains necessitate a sufficient transparency in a company’s logistics processes and performance. Unfortunately, many companies rely on large and rigid controlling systems. These systems provide countless KPIs from the depths of the ERP system. Yet most users do not know what these KPIs are based on, how they are actually defined and calculated and if their quality is even sufficient.
Effective logistics controlling does not limit itself to the supervision of any current KPI value. It provides realistic limits and targets for important logistical key parameters, instead. Conventional logistics controlling fails at this point. Target values are mostly determined by management decisions and very often unrealistic. Unrealistic targets, however, neither motivate staff nor stimulate the identification of realistic possibilities of improvement.
Using logistical KPIs as targets and controlling parameters is quite useless, if whoever causes the parameter’s value is not held responsible for those values; thus cause and responsibility have to be identified and connected.
