... or more successive sets of figures are reviewed, or is used to evaluate the company's financial statement against industry standards. * These methods are used separately or in combination. They are part of the tools that enable experienced credit professionals to reach a credit decision. Financial statements are spread and analyzed, with appropriate ratios and flows calculated as an aid in the customer evaluation. As an important first step in internal analysis, the financial statements are examined for validity and general correctness. After the statement has been accepted as valid and reasonably accurate, ratios are calculated and the figures analyzed. Internal analysis calls for an examination of items within a single financial statement for the purpose of judging their significance in relation to the capital of the company, its method of operation and conditions prevailing within the industry. The major tools for internal analysis are balance sheet ratios and a working knowledge of the line of business including the method of operation and seasonal influences. * Ratios are mathematical aids for appraisal and comparison of financial statements. They are used to supplement currency amount inspection, to examine inter-item relationships and to compare a specific company's performance against its industry standard. * The use of ratios reduces the influence of currency size on analysis since these comparisons are ......

The evolution of supply chain management occurred during the 1990s; at this time, collaboration between manufacturers and suppliers had been established in order to enhance traditional approaches in supply management functions. At the same time, retailers as well as wholesalers had integrated their logistics operations as well so as to achieve greater competitive advantages ( 2002). In the process, both of these concepts were joined and became a strategic approach to what is now known as supply chain management (SCM). In this chapter, the relation of the apparel industry to SCM is explained. Models, implementation needs as well as the dilemma on the application of SCM systems are also discussed through the citation of various related literatures and studies. Relevance of the Supply Chain to the Apparel Industry The apparel industry goes through a number of business challenges.

...Supply Chain Management in the Construction Industry: Gilmor Engineering Limited case study. By Emmanuel Ola Elehinle Student I.D 15597305 Submitted To Laureate Online Education & University of Liverpool – Online Masters Degree In Partial fulfillment for the award of Master of Science (M.Sc.) Degree in Operations and Supply Chain Management Abstract Activities in the execution of a construction project are usually time bound and require an effective management of the supply chain network to meet deadlines but the comparison of case studies and past research works shows that there are waste and problems in the construction supply chains which are characterized by inadequate coordination. In this study therefore, analysis of the key controlling parameters of a construction company’s supply chain operations and systems is carried out with an optimization of information flow within the system to improve performance. The barriers that obstruct coordination are identified and an efficient coordination model for a supply chain is suggested to accelerate and improve the economic and operational innovations for the management of construction projects. 1. Introduction Supply chain in the construction industry is a non static one and is characterized by inadequate coordination of the key processes and parameters.

Supply Chain Management

...SUPPLY MEASUREMENT BUSINESS METRICS Definition - A business metric is any type of measurement used to gauge some quantifiable component of a company's performance, such as return on investment (ROI), employee and customer churn rates, revenues, EBITDA, and so on. It can also be defined generally as a unit or units of measure to gauge a company's performance and provide the company's employees with a standard to improve. The current interest in performance measurements has led to a variety of supporting adages or clichés in the industry, such as: • “Anything measured improves.” • “What you measure is what you get.” • “Anything measured gets done.” • “You can’t manage what you do not measure.” These are not new business ideas, but there are a few new twists. Using measurements to support manufacturing operations has its roots back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries with ideas espoused by Frederick W. Taylor, the father of applying scientific methods to running business. His ideas for time and motion studies of operations were successfully used to scientifically manage production lines and warehouse operations. These ideas, however, led to exaggerated business processes that transitioned into “running a business by the stopwatch” with employers treating human employees as if they were highly reliable, predictable machines to be monitored and controlled. Over time, the workplace’s view of performance measurement became more humane and these exaggerated types...
