Software Industry Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting: SCC invites participants to a new working group for supply chain software industry representatives to discuss industry needs and issues, and the possibility of industry group benchmarking. This will be the inaugural meeting of this Software Industry SIG following the executive briefing and forum.
As companies in the software industry experience changes in the software production supply chain, from cloud computing, software as a service, globalization and other challenges, they see a need for industry collaboration and discussion at a high level. This meeting will offer the opportunity for participants to discuss possibilities, including SCOR as a framework for high level measurement. Following the morning session, anyone interested can join this discussion investigating the possibility to establish a Software Industry Special Interest Group.
Also for discussion is a new SCC project that may be of particular interest to supply chain software companies: Integrating SCC Frameworks – A New Project Proposal Enabled by xPLOR, as described in this Webinar - supply-chain.org/event/206.
Goals will be defined by the group members, but might include agreement on software industry supply chain processes, attributes, best practices, and metrics leading to industry specific benchmarking, or additions to the next version of SCOR. Participants do not share proprietary information, but the SCC special industry groups are intended to allow industry participants to share and investigate at a level that may benefit all.
Webinar and call-in will be available for those not able to attend in person – for virtual attendance registration or more information, contact Carolyn Lawrence email@example.com.

Keeping SCOR in Your Supply Chain
Richard J. Sherman, Director of North America
Supply Chain Council
The SCOR model developed by the Supply Chain Council is a standard operations reference model that is maintained by practitioner members to assist companies in defining their supply chain processes from end to end. As a standard, the SCOR model is also used to facilitate collaboration with suppliers and customers across a supply network. It is comprised of processes, best practices, enabling technologies, performance metrics and HR skills that enable companies to continuously benchmark, assess and improve their systems and operations. The best practices include all transformation methodologies including: Lean, Six Sigma, TQM, CPFR, etc.
This session will provide an overview of the issues facing companies across their supply chain and an introduction to the SCOR model and how to apply it to your company to identify systems and operations improvement opportunities, key performance metrics and how to leverage the Supply Chain Council to benchmark your operations.
