Using Inventory Turnover to Assess Supply Chain Performance


In Pakistan, a new web-based logistics management information system is improving visibility into the country’s public health supply chain by giving stakeholders the information they need to respond effectively to client demand for contraceptives. To measure the performance of the new system, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT compared inventory turnover ratios—an industry measure of supply chain efficiency—in districts that use a web-based LMIS with ratios in districts that use the traditional paper-based system. This article details the project's findings that the web-based LMIS increases performance and efficiency in the supply chain, as measured through inventory turnover ratios. This article was written by JSI's USAID | DELIVER PROJECT in 2013.
