(2) SCRM requirements should always focus on the size of your individual efforts, as well as your supply chain. (3) Increased support for a variety of different SCRM requirements for specific automation tools, as well as broader applications. (4) SCRM requirements need to look at your available staff for each shift. If a system requires one person to be continually at the helm, you’ll need a specific staff level.

Metrics and Monitoring Your Company’s SCRM Process to Manage Risk

Supply chain risks are potential threats or disruptions that can impact the flow of goods and services within a supply chain network. SCRM metrics are specific data points that SCRM teams track and use to improve efficiency and effectiveness. When defined, understood, and implemented, SCRM metrics can become insights that help guide and improve a team’s agile journey. SCRM teams use metrics to inform decision-making and become more efficient in planning and execution. A number of techniques and tools may be useful in helping to manage and identify risks. Monitoring SCRM metrics can involve process improvement, buffer strategies, forming strategic alliances and developing suppliers.
