Abstract

Although financial statistics for a company are readily available, measurements of manufacturing operations are scarce and often vague. A monitoring system called Key Indicator Management (KIM) graphs the measure of a specific indicator on a monthly basis and compares it to a target. A realistic determination of standards and targets is necessary for proper implementation. KIM provides managers with the information to assess strengths and weaknesses and encourages better control of operating functions.
