Organisations focus on having an excellent supply chain to increase net income. But how to measure excellence in a supply chain? This paper is concerned with excellence within Supply Chain Management (SCM) and how this can be measured. The focus is on identifying and suggesting a model that can be used for measuring excellence in a supply chain. The result from a study of 30 companies with the aim to investigate how companies in 10 different sectors are working with supply chain excellence is an origin for the model. The paper suggests a coordinate and cooperate model, or index figure, that is based on a combination of the cost for the supply chain and performance towards the customer.
