AMR Research Releases Second Annual Supply Chain Top 25

AMR Research released its second annual report, “The AMR Research Supply Chain Top 25 for 2005.” 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.

“Business and financial leaders have come to recognize the strategic importance of supply chain,” says Kevin O’Marah, vice president of research at AMR Research. “These 25 companies are defining the future of supply chain and giving their companies a predator’s edge.”

On Thursday, November 10th at 11:00 a.m. ET, AMR Research president and CEO Tony Friscia will host a Webcast on The Supply Chain Top 25 and explain how companies engage their global supply chains to become more competitive. He will be joined by Kevin O’Marah and executives from Motorola and IBM. To register for this free Webcast, please visit www.amrresearch.com/events.

 If you are interested in receiving more information or a copy of the report, please call Lauren Berry at (617) 542-6600 or email lberry@amrresearch.com.
