Abstract: The objective of this research work is to develop a benchmarking frame work for internal supply chain management (ISCM). The working steps of benchmarking framework can be explained by a functional activity flow chart. Timely regulation of benchmarking framework should be helpful for optimising the existing internal supply chain process. A case study is used to gather the relevant data information from industrial experts, advisors, supervisors and academics experts. The aim of authors is to evaluate ROI of top two heavy fabrication construction equipment's manufacturing industries. The optimisation of ROI has done by identifying problems of ISCM and taking appropriate corrective measures to rectifying them.

Keywords: internal supply chain management; ISCM; benchmarking; return on investment; ROI.
