SCC & SCOR HRdergi Conference 2010

But SCM is Paramount in Times of Economic Uncertainty

  • In 2007, US business logistics costs rose to an all time high of $1.4 trillion (10.1% of US nominal Gross Domestic Product ) 3

  • Supply-chain generally accounts for between 60% and 90% of all company costs1

  • A 2% improvement in process efficiency for supply-chain processes has 3000% - 5000% the impact of a 2% improvement in efficiency for… IT… HR… Finance1… Sales…

  • SCOR is a supply chain process reference model containing over 200 process elements, 550 metrics, and 500 best practices including risk and environmental management

  • Organized around the five primary management processes of Plan, Source, Make, Deliver and Return

  • Developed by the industry for use as an industry open standard - Any interested organization can participate in its continual development


SCC & SCOR HRdergi Conference 2010

The SCOR® model – a cross-industry open standard












  • The five integrated processes provide a boundary-free view of the true end-to-end Extended Supply Chain

  • Supports intra- and cross-enterprise optimization of arbitrary scale

SCOR Benefits Companies

SCOR can be used to describe supply chains that are very simple or very complex using a common set of definitions and enabling a common understanding

It helps companies:

  • Form an integrated measured strategy which translates overall business objectives clearly and comprehensively to all operational business entities

  • Create a common balanced scorecard by which customers can measure their performance and by which SCC members can measure suppliers’ performance

  • Compare the performance of supply chain and related operations within their company or against other companies

  • Determine what processes to improve and by how much to improve them either eliminating waste, or by improving process reliability

  • Guide the consolidation of internal supply chains (which results in significant cost reductions from eliminating duplicative assets)

  • Create standard processes and common information systems across business units (which generates major cost savings, cycle-time and quality improvements)
