Abstract

Spurred by intensifying competition in global markets, most companies have been increasingly implementing supply chain management (SCM) and information systems (IS) practices. As well, globalization policies have created a more intensive competition amongst manufacturers; in additional the priority of supply over demand, market competition and importance of some factor such as quality, accountability has encouraged companies to integrate their activities using SCM. Performance measurement of supply chain management reflects the need for improvement in operational areas which are found wanton in performance measures. In addition to the results obtained from the evaluation of supply chain performance based on inner changed data can help the integration of supply chain activities and their inner changed data through improving the chain relations and it satisfies customers. In addition, Supply chain (SC) performance evaluation problems cover a wide range from evaluating the performance of independent organizations among supply chains to evaluating the performance of a whole supply chain system. Therefore, in this paper, as regards, performance evaluation is of great importance for effective supply chain management, it has been tried to evaluate supply chain performance by both exact and interval data. This model is illustrated by a numerical example.
