You can open your food safety and quality toolbox again to select your next tool for improved supply chain management. You and your partners have been uploading and creating data using your other tools. You do not want to just fill a file cabinet with data. You need to utilize the data to speed improvement in quality, food safety, and costs.
You can easily tie various data sets together to create Quarterly & Annual Scorecards. You can utilize specific data sets based upon your defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Your KPIs can be drawn from audit results, product evaluation results, noncompliance reports, etc.
When you have developed multiple scorecard results, create trending analysis graphs to further your understanding of the supply chain performance. The trending will illustrate which segment of the supply chain or specific partners are the “best in class” or should be eliminated from future contracts.
Reporting is a key component of supply chain management. You can utilize the scorecard data easily to illustrate both your performance managing the supply chain and drive further cost saving matrixes.
