The purpose of this dissertation was to develop a general model for evaluating multinational supply chains. This model could provide guidelines for process-based manufacturing companies when comparing or choosing between different supply chains in order to make long-term investment decisions. Therefore, the authors looked through various measurement, comparison and evaluation theories. The data gained during interviews (case studies) and questionnaires (survey) helped to create a model, which proved to be generally applicable since it occured that tere is no real difference between the evaluation of national and multinational supply chains. Therefore, the model can be applied for domestic as well as for multinational supply chain evaluation purposes.
