I'm a bit late in getting to this news, but AMR recently published a solid piece of research highlighting the top 25 manufacturing supply chains. The methodology for AMR's research relied on qualitative factors such as peer opinions, research opinions and financial metrics including return on assets (ROA) inventory turns and revenue growth. Not surprisingly, supply chain heavyweights including IBM, Toyota, Apple and P&G are at the top of the list. But Nokia took the top spot, proving that company location -- come on, Finland is not exactly the center of the manufacturing or distribution universe -- has nothing to do with overall supply chain performance. Kudos to AMR for producing such an insightful and useful analysis.
