Configuring the Supply Chain Operations Reference Model
Stein Armin, Heddier Marcel, Knackstedt Ralf, Becker Jörg
The Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model for supply chain design is often perceived as too general by researchers and practitioners. The article describes a possible solution to this by elaborating a configurative approach to SCOR model-based supply chain design. It provides evidence for specific requirements from literature and practice. Based on these requirements, a set of design principles is proposed and evaluated by exemplarily demonstrating the configuration approach. A configurable SCOR model may counteract the heterogeneity of SCOR model extensions and modifications in literature and practice and may be the foundation for a tool-supported instrument in the area of configurative supply chain design.
