Abstract

This study focuses on the comparison of two companies; company A, which has adopted G-FMI (Global Factory Managed Inventory) and company B which has not adopted G-FMI. The aim of this study is fourfold: to identify those external and internal weighted factors which influence cash flow on these two companies, to compare and analyze the degree of influence of such weighted factors, and to prove the superiority of G-FMI through comparison analysis of the two companies, and finally, to clarify the effect of contribution of top management on discrete business companies. Analysis of the results taken from use of publicly available data has identified the weighted factors unique to each company, quantitatively measured the degree of influence of each weighted factor through use of standardized coefficients, and found that exchange rates had the greatest influence on the cashflow of company A. By using this research as a basis, it is possible to identify those weighted factors influencing any company and to do a quantitative comparison analysis on the degree of influence of those factors for any company.
