AMR Research Releases Second Annual Supply Chain Top 25


BOSTON, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, AMR Research released its second
annual report, The Supply Chain Top 25. The report identifies the top 25
manufacturers and retailers that exhibit superior supply chain capabilities
and performance. Supply chain leaders are able to shape demand, instantly
respond to market changes, and crush their competitors. According to AMR
Research benchmarking data, leaders carry 15% less inventory, are 60% faster-
to-market, and complete 17% more perfect orders. These advantages separate
predators from prey.
The report identifies what is publicly known about each company's past
performance, but is augmented by AMR Research's analysis of future earning
potential as driven by supply chain dominance.
The first component of the ranking is publicly available financial data
and is weighted at 60% of the total score, with return on assets and inventory
turns each accounting for 25%, and trailing 12 months growth accounting for
10%. The second component of the ranking is AMR Research's opinion, which is
weighted at 40% of the total score. The opinion component is based on a
structured voting methodology across AMR Research's team of analysts.
