A “how-to” guide for supply chain professionals who need accurate cost information for end-to-end processes

With the increasing pace of globalization, supply chain professionals find that they have less and less margin for error in their decisions making. Competition is getting more intense, and, unfortunately, CFOs and accountants do not currently provide supply chain managers with the information required to make better decisions. Supply Chain Costing and Performance Management, 2nd Edition, will show you (and the executives you report to) how to understand and apply various enterprise and corporate performance management (EPM/CPM) methods related to costs and profit margins and performance measurements.

  • Learn how to access accurate cost and pricing information related to both your company and your trading partners
  • Overcome siloed information by creating your own costing practices using proven methods drawn from leading firms
  • Understand what drives activity costs for each step in end-to-end business processes
  • Assess the performance of your costing activities with step-by-step measurement guidelines
  • Make better decisions and improve performance and profitability with clearer, more transparent cost and price data

The information in this book will empower supply chain managers with the ability to make better decisions and improve their organizations’ performance and profitability.
