Supply Chain Council Publishes SCOR 11

Houston, Texas - ­ Supply Chain Council volunteer teams have completed the work of several years to officially publish SCOR® (Supply Chain Operations Reference-model) version 11, now available online to all member organizations of SCC via online member access at

The Supply-Chain Council (SCC), the global not-for-profit organization supporting supply chain professionals and educators, announced the release of version 11 for access, as well as the incorporation of the new material into all SCOR training and certification programs beginning in 2013.

This major update includes Enable Process, Best Practices, and Cost Metrics redesign.  These updates bring the model current with how these processes, practices, and metrics are needed by supply chain practitioners implementing the model today.

SCOR describes the business activities associated with all phases of satisfying a customer's demand. The model itself is organized around primary management processes, and now with SCOR 11, ENABLE is advanced to one of these processes, so there are six: ­ PLAN, MAKE, SOURCE, DELIVER, RETURN, and ENABLE.

Using these process building blocks, SCOR can be used to describe supply chains that are very simple or very complex using a common set of definitions across disparate industries. Today public and private organizations and companies around the world use the model as a foundation for global and site-specific supply chain improvement projects.

"Version 11 marks a significant evolution in the SCOR model," said Caspar Hunsche, Research Director, Supply-Chain Council.  "The major additions enable implementers stronger guidance for gauging, measuring, and improving the effectiveness of their supply chains.  As a result, SCOR continues to be the standard upon which leading organizations base their critical initiatives for substantially improving supply chain performance."


Supply Chain Council, is a global management organization that helps its member organizations make dramatic and rapid improvements in supply chain processes. SCC maintains the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR®) model, the supply chain management community's most widely accepted framework for evaluating and comparing supply chain activities and improving performance.
