ABSTRACT
This article presents results of a survey conducted by the management consulting company PRTM, which shows how companies that have invested in supply chain planning (SCP) software licenses since 1998 have not yet achieved the return on investment (ROI) they expected from implementing SCP solutions. The survey identifies the business reasons behind the success and failure of recent SCP implementations and the keys to achieving ROI from these solutions. The findings indicate that companies tend to apply a given technology solution to their supply chain problem instead of focusing on the larger goal of improved business results. Only half of the companies surveyed used quantitative criteria at the outset to judge the success of their SCP implementations. The majority of companies used soft criteria as targets, such as successfully installed software and system acceptance by users, which focused mainly on the technology itself, not on the specific impact on business operations.
