  • Objective: To use objective financial results from the balance sheet and income statement to understand what metrics correlate between supply chain excellence and market capitalization and design a new ranking system for supply chains based upon the model.
  • Hypothesis: Each industry is unique and a good supply chain has different characteristics based upon the specific industry it is in, the product it creates and the customers it serves.
