 SCOR 11 Best Practices

SCC volunteers, representing a significant cross section of industries, worked for almost a year to enrich the user experience of identification and application of practices in the SCOR reference model. The focus was to insure that SCOR practices, new and revised, are clearly defined and qualified, include metrics, and are linked to more information (if available). They have also been classified for user ability to sort on key classifications. The result is a stronger set of practices, with at least one identified for each level 3 process element in the SCOR framework. This revision will improve usability of the practices to drive sustained supply chain improvement. Volunteers will also cover the other addtions being added to SCOR 11 - the revised Enablers and Cost Metrics.
