Supply chain performance is determined by a series of drivers. For each of these drivers, supply chain managers must make trade-offs between cost/efficiency and responsiveness. Key decisions must be made in the areas of inventory, transportation, facilities and information. These four areas are considered to be the primary drivers of supply chain performance. Supply chain managers must be able to undertake research and subsequently develop strategies that improve both the efficiency and the responsiveness of the supply chain. Doing so only becomes possible by gaining a deeper understanding of all key supply chain drivers and their respective impact/influence on supply chain performance.
