Supply Chain Management Workshop
Improving Supply Chain Performance With
WHY YOU NEED TO KNOW?
Supply-chain is growing in complexity due to global sourcing, cross-border delivery and increased outsourcing
activities. Many companies decide to review and improve their supply-chains, however, most of them are facing:
More cooperation and efficiency problems with increasing number of working interfaces between parties;
Lack of tools for evaluation and implementation of supply chain improvement projects, making practitioners
difficult to start with;
Difficulties in picking appropriate supply chain practice(s) for implementation from a pool of confusing and
evolving management concepts; and
Lack of a structured approach to handle supply chain improvement.
WHAT CAN SCOR® DO?
Supply-Chain Operations Reference (SCOR®) Model is a popular reference model for supply chain improvement in
United States and many parts of the world. It is developed by the Supply-Chain Council, Inc. in 1996 and is
continuously expanding in terms of process coverage and associated methodologies through the efforts of industry
supply chain practitioners and academics. Nowadays, about 1,000 companies in the world are using the model to
improve their supply chain operations and this number keeps increasing especially in the China context.
A structured approach & practical methodology, blended with latest concepts like business process reengineering,
process configuration, operation modeling and performance measurement, for starting supply chain initiatives and
conducting supply chain improvement projects;
A common language resembling other modeling languages like CAD and UML for constructing a supply chain
with shared views, communicating changes or definitions of processes in a multi-party environment;
A set of common, easy-to-understand terminology, process building blocks with definitions and performance
metrics which enable performance measurement; and
Insights and suggestions on best practices for companies to build a project portfolio for improvement.
