Hitachi Consulting: Few Companies Recognize the Impact of Responsiveness on their Supply Chains

A recent survey by Hitachi Consulting and AMR Research found that, while most companies understand the need for responsiveness to deal with cost pressures, shorter product lifecycles, increased customer expectations and fluctuating demand requirements, few companies recognize the impact that becoming more responsive has on their supply chain.

Key Findings
• Mature supply chain organizations do experience benefits. Each four year investment in supply chain excellence represents a 1% improvement in return on assets.
• Having visibility across, and the ability to control your supply chain is highly relevant to helping companies become more responsive.
