Abstract

This paper presents the outcome of a benchmarking-based approach to improving the supply chain management performance of companies. The work was carried out with Scottish electronics manufacturing companies, predominately from the SME sector. Conceived and managed by Scottish Enterprise, this eight company pilot was a pre-cursor to full implementation of a diagnostic and improvement approach to enhancing the supply chain management understanding and skills to add to the competitive edge of the electronics cluster in Scotland.
