German term or phrase: Determinierungsgrad
Beschaffung: Ein verstärkter Übergang zu einer weltweiten Beschaffung (global sourcing) führt in aller Regel zu einer Verschlechterung des mengenmäßigen,
qualitätsmäßigen und terminlichen Determinierungsgrades der Materialströme.
Um einen bestimmten Servicegrad für die Kunden zu halten, sind folglich Kompensationsstrukturen zu schaffen (z.B. Implementierung gesonderter
Steuerungssysteme, Erhöhung der Planungsfrequenz).

This sentence comes from a text on the development of logistics. Any help with the term much appreciated.
