SCM is a process for designing, developing, optimizing, and managing the internal and external components of the supply system in a manner that is consistent with the overall firm‘s objectives and strategies. Performance measurement is the process of quantifying effectiveness and efficiency of action. The Ethiopia meat processing industries has many supply chain problems. The main reason for these problems could be the lack of conceptual framework and lack of measure supply chain performance among meat processing industries. These challenges impact on the country‘s current share in the global export market for meat is less. Aware of these problems, this study was conducted mainly to evaluate supply chain performance regarding performance measurement indicators of meat processing companies in Ethiopia Then determining the key indicators of companies‘ performance measurement by using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to improve supply chain performance for industries. The study uses the concept of decision making levels and supply chain macro processes as its approach to the study of the supply chain performance measurement. Questioner survey and semi structural interviews were used to collect the data for this study. The whole finding involves the analysis of an overall supply chain performance from three supply chain macro processes; supplier relationship management, internal supply chain management and customer relationship management based on strategic, tactical and operational decision making levels.
