Facilitating Supply Chain Visibility & Accuracy
An Analysis of ASN Benchmarks and Best Practices
Does ASN accuracy really matter?
Can we just assume that the vendor puts in the box what the ASN says is in the box?
According to a study by Compliance Networks and Auburn University, an assumption of ASN accuracy may be risky. When problems arise, the implications reach from the DC all the way to the consumer. After examining ASN audit data from multiple retailers from 2006 to 2010, the study's preliminary findings indicate that average ASN accuracy rates are below 95%.
