Key Figures are used for supporting decisions, the management and control of measurements in companies and are therefore an important component. Collected key figures measure continuously process performances and the success of companies. Processes can be monitored and permanently improved, future risks and opportunities can be highlighted. They stand in useful relationships to each other in implemented key figure systems and thus can be used for greater root cause analysis to identify important relationships of entrepreneurial activities. Entire supply chains become more transparent and easier to understand while using key figures. On this base the whole supply chain can be controlled from the company to its suppliers. The 4. Industrial revolution and the implementation of Industry 4.0-technologies will lead to major changes in companies. New occurring effects within the own company and along the entire supply chain cannot be fully estimated yet.
