The Hierarchy of Supply Chain Metrics
Since 2010, Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, has been publishing an annual report entitled 'Gartner Supply Chain Top 25' which ranks organizations that demonstrate leadership in supply chain management. In each of these reports, the 'Hierarchy of Supply Chain Metrics' is positioned as the ideal set of metrics to measure supply chain operational performance. To emphasize Gartner's stance, the subtitle reads: 'The Metrics We Wish We Had'.

My interest also extends to the hospital supply chain. With inventories representing 30% of hospital costs, second only to labor costs, there are huge gains in organizational performance that can be had through better supply chain management.
