Buying channel analysis examines requester need, material type, location, transaction cost, supplier, PO count and size ($). Balances transaction cost, responsiveness, tracking and risk to identify the right channel mix. 

3 Transaction Cost per Channel
NATCO = 0 NATCO = 0 NATCO Currently 48,000 PO / Year Ave Cost: $150 / PO Cost per PO = $10-15 Cost per PO = $40-60 NATCO = 0 NATCO = 100% Cost per PO = $5-10 Cost per PO = $150 plus

4 Transaction Cost per Channel
NATCO = 20% NATCO Currently 48,000 PO / Year Ave Cost: $150 / PO NATCO = 40% Cost per PO = $10-15 Cost per PO = $40-60 NATCO Objective 48,000 PO / Year Ave Cost: $106/ PO NATCO = 30% NATCO = 10% Cost per PO = $5-10 Cost per PO = $150 plus NATCO Savings 48,000 PO / Year 20 man years

5 Procurement Capacity Benchmarks
