Supply Chain Consultants, which offers the Zemeter suite of supply chain management products, has announced Zemeter Performance Management, an "out-of-the-box" solution that provides a daily view of an organization's supply chain using detailed metrics for demand, supply and financial performance.
The developer says the new module builds on its Zemeter software to create a tool that gathers and monitors data within a supply chain, while also analyzing the reasons for monitoring the data and determining what actions can be taken in response to the measurement. Performance Management uses a dashboard manager to track metrics and key performance indicators that can help identify imbalances and trends in the supply chain, allowing managers to make adjustments before a problem develops.
Sujit Singh, vice president of supply chain solutions for SCC, says: "The Zemeter Performance Management module addresses the need for an out-of-the-box tool that provides a daily, comprehensive view of a supply chain's health, while enabling the entire company to use the same set of measurements to track results. With the use of early warning indicators and detailed, yet easily accessible reporting features, Zemeter Performance Management provides a window into the present to help companies control the future of their business."
The early warning indicators signal an alert on the dashboard when metrics or key performance indicators move outside of defined limits. Users can select from a number of pre-defined metrics or define unique key performance indicators that can be easily adapted as business conditions change. Each metric provides the ability to drill down to additional detail and see trends over time.
