The State of Supply Chain Management report measures the current status of Australian enterprise supply chains. It provides an analysis of the situation within the supply chain industry in Australia and New Zealand, as a result of the quantitative analysis carried out on the basis of survey responses. Year on year, this report aims to demonstrate the role of supply chain within the organisational structure and the overall business operations across these countries. While data is acquired locally, the results are part of a global conversation.
In the 21st century, it is not companies that compete but their global supply chains. The report provides an understanding of the maturity across eight components of supply chain management (SCM):
2. Technology and Automation
4. Compliance and Regulation
5. Logistics and Distribution
6. Risk Management
