KPMG ASCM Collaboration

The KPMG Supply Chain Stability Index, in association with ASCM

Read Current Report

Effective supply chain planning hinges on accurate measurement and understanding of the stresses that exist within a network. To help meet this need, KPMG, in association with ASCM, has launched the global Supply Chain Stability Index. This tool uses data analytics and machine learning to look at past trends and predict future shifts in supply chain. Its application enables supply chain organizations to forecast the impact of these trends with more confidence. 

Changes in supply chain are a major factor in procurement decisions and a driver of price fluctuations. To get ahead of change, four factors are considered in the Supply Chain Stability Index: 

  • The overall volume of goods shipped 
  • The speed at which goods reach their destination 
  • The cost of transporting goods from the source to the ultimate destination 
  • The variability of these factors 

By taking into account these factors, the index illuminates stresses and where they originate, helping users predict supply chain fragility up to three months ahead — and eventually further into the future, as the data accumulates. The ultimate goal of this index is to create more resilient supply chains despite ongoing volatility.

A set of machine learning algorithms have been built to gain insights into the sources of stress and how companies are responding to the new norm in supply chains.
