ABSTRACT
This article reports that the special interest groups (SIG) of the Institute of Logistics and Transport, in association with the Manufacturing Logistics SIG, recently held a seminar in London, England looking at supply chain benchmarking using the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) Model. The speaker was Susan Allerton. The first part of Susan Allerton's presentation was an overview of the SCOR. SCOR is a process reference model designed for effective communication among supply chain partners. It has been developed to describe the business activities associated with all phases of satisfying a customer's demand. The model is organized around the five primary management processes of plan, source, make, deliver, and return. The speaker presented a project undertaken by the Gist company. Given a timescale of eight weeks, the client wanted Gist to deliver an overall picture of its global supply chain, identify improvement opportunities and make high-level improvement proposals and associated benefits.
