Supply Chain Success Metrics

Gibson defines success as actual, sustainable financial results. These savings are measured by the bottom-line impact in terms of COGS reduction (direct materials), SG&A (indirect materials), and/or margin improvement. Our clients measure the results themselves to eliminate any confusion on actual, realized results. The magnitude of savings is directly related to the execution quality of our 11 Gate Process, and the sustainability of savings is directly related to our clients’ training absorption and process adoption into their purchasing philosophy.
