Performance measurement system for inventory management – a case study
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
This paper presents a case study about performance measurement in inventory management executed at a component manufacturing company within the automotive industry with sites all over the world. The objective of this study is to explore what performance measurements, related to inventory management, are actually used. It is shown that the company uses the performance measurements proposed in the literature but not in the right way. At the case company it is seen that the different functions and different sites have variances of the measurements making it less useful for both comparison and aggregation.
