Designing an Engineer-To-Order Performance Measurement System: A Case Study

Abstract : The conventional maxim of "what gets measured gets done" has motivated many companies to systematically measure their performance over the years. From previously being focused solely on financial, backward-looking measures, it is now generally agreed that a performance measurement system (PMS) should align with a company’s long-term, strategic objectives. These objectives are largely dictated by the company’s production situation, and vice versa. When being approached by a Norwegian engineer-to-order (ETO) company requesting a PMS, the authors could not identify any literature explicitly referring to PMS for ETO. The authors therefore set out to design the PMS from scratch. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate how the PMS was designed in close collaboration with the case company, bearing the general characteristics and competitive priorities of ETO in mind.
