The Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) has recently updated the long-standing Supply Chain Operational Reference (SCOR) Model. Gone is the familiar linear Plan, Source, Make, Deliver, Return model, which has been replaced by an updated SCOR Digital Standard | ASCM or SCOR-DS. You can still see elements of the old model in the new, but there are some new elements, such as Synchronize, Regenerate, and Transform. Here is a rundown of the new elements:

  • Orchestrate - describes the activities associated with the integration and enablement of supply chain strategies.
  • Order - describes the activities associated with the customer purchase of products and services.
  • Transform - describes the activities associated with the scheduling and creation of products, including production; assembly and disassembly; maintenance, repair and overhaul.
  • Return - describes the activities associated with the reverse flow of goods and services.
  • Plan - describes the activities associated with developing road maps to operate the supply chain.
  • Source - describes the activities associated with procuring, ordering, scheduling the ordering, delivery, receipt, and transfer of products and services.
  • Fulfill - describes the activities associated with executing customer orders or services, including scheduling order delivery, picking, packing, shipping, installing, commissioning and invoicing.

DAU will be updating the LOG 0370 DoD Supply Chain Fundamentals course later this year to incorporate information about this updated model. Additionally, ASCM offers a free introduction to the new model at Supply Chain Learning Link (force.com) and the model can be explored at SCOR Model (ascm.org).
