Simulation, Modeling and SCOR Model
The Supply Chain Council developed and endorsed the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model. The SCOR model integrated the concepts of business process reengineering, benchmarking, and process measurement into a cross-functional framework. The SCOR model describes the business activities associated with all phases of satisfying a customer’s demand. The model is organized around five management processes: Plan, Source, Make, Deliver, and Return. By describing supply chains using these processes, the model can be used to describe supply chains that are very simple or very complex using a common set of definitions. “As a result, disparate industries can be linked to describe the depth and breadth of virtually any supply chain. The SCOR model has been able to successfully describe and provide a basis for supply chain improvement for global projects as well as site-specific projects” (SCC, 2003). In order to facilitate a common description of the supply chain, researchers have performed simulation-modeling efforts that utilize the SCOR model as the building block to define the model structure. In their research, Barnett and Miller (2000) developed architectural components to implement a distributed supply chain-modeling tool based on e-SCOR. e-SCOR is a supply chain modeling tool developed by Gensym that is based on the SCOR model. Pundoor (2002) and Herrmann, Lin and Pundoor (2003) developed a supply chain
