PES Introduces Cost-Cutting Service Based on SCOR

July 23, 2009
LIVONIA, Mich.—Referencing a recent survey that indicated supply chain management costs account for 60% to 90% of total costs for most manufacturing and distribution companies, Productivity Engineering Services (PES) announces a new service that it says helps reduce those costs.

The new offering uses the Supply Chain Operations Reference Model (SCOR), a tool based on real-world techniques for measuring and managing a global supply chain. “Reducing total supply chain costs, freeing up working capital and maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction are top priorities for many companies coping with the recession,” says Jeffrey H. Miller, PE, CPIM, SCOR/P, founder and principal of PES. “Whether your goal is to enhance the performance of an existing supply chain or implement a new one, the SCOR model is one of the best tools available to make your supply chain run better.”
