(*) Required fields

The SCOR – Supply Chain Operations Reference Model was developed initially for the Supply Chain Council (SCC) in 1996 and it is an indispensable model of reference to design and implement a solid Supply Chain project.

The SCOR model brings together Business, Metrics, Best Practice and Technology processes under an internationally recognised framework to:
• Improve communication between SC Partners
• Improve the efficiency of SC management
• Measure SC processes
• identify the continuous improvement path

The company can greatly improve its own performance by applying it in the designing or the re-engineering of a Supply Chain.
For participants, the course constitutes an important opportunity to learn the logic of the model and the rules to efficiently implement it.

By using the standardization of macro processes and the use of a common language, the SCOR model is based on three correlated “pillars”:
• Modelling
• Key Performance indicators
• Best Practices

The model is very useful in the following cases:
• Development of an SC strategy
• Reviewing of the SC in case of acquisition, mergers or disinvestments
• Optimisation or Re-engineering of an SC
• Standardisation and reduction of the costs of an SC
• Creation of company dashboards and management reports
• Planning of the Start-up of an SC
• Benchmarking
• Processes of Outsourcing –identification of the processes to be used
• ERP Implementation
• Identification of skill models for an SC


  • Teaching plan

    The teaching plan is made up of the course structure and detailed plan.
