Supply Chain Council (SCC) has released Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model 10.0. The release features three firsts for the framework for global supply chain management:
1. Version 10.0 introduces people skills requirements to help organizations build supply chain competency and career paths.
2. SCC members may access and use an HTML online format of the SCOR model to provide flexibility for searching and modeling.
3. Supply chain managers whose organizations are not yet members of SCC may purchase copies of the print edition of the SCOR model.
The SCC website features a free, downloadable SCOR 10.0 overview that provides more detail on the SCOR model 10.0 updates.
In addition to clarifying the supply chain performance metrics, processes and best practices found in the previous version, SCOR 10.0 introduces detailed employee skill requirements. It outlines training needs and individual performance measures for each of the core process elements. It is designed to help supply chain and human resource leaders find and develop people who have the requisite technical expertise and experience.
"Talented people will be at the heart of supply chains that effectively respond to and capitalize on growth opportunities in an expanding global market," says SCC Research Director Caspar Hunsche. "SCOR 10.0 adds the technical skills, aptitude, and experience required to manage an effective supply chain. The addition allows supply chain leaders to align the skills of their people and organizational structure with their strategic objectives."
Each refinement of the SCOR model is driven by a collaborative team of practitioners from a cross section of industry, government and nonprofit organizations that use it daily to analyze and improve their organizations’ supply chain performance. Represented companies include: Air Products, Boeing, Ericsson, i2 Technologies, IBM, Lockheed Martin, McCormick & Company, Phillips, Saab Aerotech, Sasol Ltd., Satellite Logistics Group, Sonoco, Sunergos, United Space Alliance, and Wipro.
