University of Applied Science, Ludwigshafen - Bachelor Thesis (Feb 2011 - Apr 2011)

"Framework for the analysis of logistical indicators within the Supply Chain" (80 pages)

� Conducted literature research on the contemporary definition of logistics, associated business areas and impact on different business strategies. Segmented

the material flow into Inbound, Intra and Outbound Logistics and allocated each operational logistic division to one of these segments by identifying their

scope of duty and responsibility.

� Identified suitable "Key Performance Indicators" to measure the isolated logistical performance within each operational division. The main emphasis was on

the display of the logistic structure, the productivity and the temporal and qualitative performance.

� Designed a KPI-System to measure the logistical performance with due regard to the internal interdependencies and those between the company and the

trading and service partners. The KPI-System enabled the user to evaluate the logistical performance of each operational area and identified the weak spots

and especially the bottle-necks inside the material flow.

logistic contractors to negotiate the terms and prices of their offers. On the basis of the management decision models the responsible manager was able to

negotiate during these meetings and finalise the tender with a reduction in expenses of 4%, which led to a monetary saving of �2m over the next three years.

submitted them to colleagues in the shortest time possible. All slides (i.e. once over 60 slides for one customer) were accepted in the final presentation

without any changes.

���������������������������������������������������������������������������� It became a majority-stake subsidiary of the American General

� Analysed in-country test reports (driving tests in different countries within Asia, Africa, Russia to analyse the car's behaviour under different weather and

climatic conditions) of different Opel models to show whether major problems during driving occur within the first 10,000km or later. Clustered the different

technical problems to develop a grading system for interpreting test results.

The usage of the grading system made interpretation of data possible. Test routes less than 10,000km being too short to give detailed information about

possible problems that might occur (e.g. engine breakdown, deterioration of brakes, etc.). Presented results graphically within the team and therewith

supported general assumption of the division.

� Results were of great importance to general management because their idea of reducing the length of test routes could be avoided. Shorter routes hiding

major car problems and creating the highest repair costs for Opel.
