SAMPLE FINDING

An important measure of financial management in the supply chain is the cash-to-cash conversion cycle. Usually defined as the time it takes to take a dollar, purchase raw materials, manufacture, sell, distribute, and collect on sales.

One method of practically calculating this ratio is as follows:
CCC = DSO + ISO – DPO

Cash Conversion Cycle
One respondent boasts a cash conversion cycle of negative 7 days. 1/3 of reporting companies have a CCC of < 50 days; 1/3 are between 50 and 100 days; and 1/3 are greater than 100 days.
