In this paper we present a methodology, by utilizing a nonparametric multivariate cumulative sum control chart and data envelopment analysis in tandem, to evaluate and monitor distribution network performance by simultaneously considering multiple performance factors and their interrelationships. While these methods were previously applied individually, we demonstrate that their combined use can provide more powerful results in performance assessment, monitoring and improvement. Our approach contributes to the domain of supply chain analytics as it can provide new insights and understanding of business performance based on operations research and statistical methods to utilize real-time and past data. We demonstrate the application of our models on data gathered from The Dow Chemical Company, which is a multi-national vertically integrated chemical corporation.
