Description of the project

Virtually every company have implemented some kind of Business Performance Measurement System (BPMS) with the purpose of monitoring production and business performance and to execute business and corporate strategy at all levels in a company. As sustainability has become a focus area, new frameworks and measures have been introduced. There are however shortcomings in today’s industrial practice regarding BPMS such as (1) unclear interdependencies between individual measures, (2) poor inclusion of the sustainability dimension into BPMS and improvement systems, (3) vague links between measures, goals and strategic decisions and (4) lack of principals and measures for improvements of other processes than manufacturing.

The aim of the SuRe BPMS project is to address these shortcomings in close collaboration within the project consortium, consisting of 3 universities, one research institute, 5 manufacturing companies and two consultancy firms. The industrial project partners are recruited to form a broad constellation regarding size, products, role and motivation for participating in the project.

The project goals are to (1) include the sustainability dimension to the BPMS and improvement system, (2) develop measures supporting proactive decisions instead of reactive measuring, (3) increase organizational alignment of performance measures between different levels in the organization, (4) add performance characterization of more business processes into the BPMS.The objective is to increase efficiency and measurability in corporate management and production strategies integrating sustainability. This will in turn lead to reduced cost, increased resource efficiency and transparency in forthcoming decisions based on new principles and support.
