Contingency factors and globalization phenomena are forcing companies to revise the way theyconceive and manage their operations network. Operations strategic management systems shoulddevelop specific design requirements to deal with a complex and changing environment, that is,operations strategy plans should be continuously assed and updated. This paper frame a discussionbased on operations strategy and performance measurement framework. Performancemeasurement roles are revised in order to assess their alignment to new design requirements foroperations strategic management. Based on a set of updated performance measurement systemsroles, a case study protocol is developed and applied to manufacturing and service companies.Although classical roles as performance monitoring and control are still the main focus ofoperations performance measurement systems, evidences collected show a growing use of thesemanagement systems for continuous improvement and change management processes.
