The new SCOR DS has introduced the biggest update to SCOR Model Certification since its inception and modernized the framework to include sustainability standards & a digital body of knowledge. This version of SCOR shifts the perspective from a linear supply chain model to a more synchronous supply network. The SCOR DS Model was developed by a distinguished group of subject matter experts. SCOR DS Model is similar to the SCOR-P certification. In this new model, there have been updates to the processes, skills, metrics, and practices that ensure total coverage across multiple industries.

The SCOR Model describes the business activities associated with all the phases involved in effectively satisfying customer demand. It has been used by thousands of public and private organizations around the world to assess and improve their supply chains, directly leading to improved operational performance.

The updated SCOR model focuses on seven primary management processes: Orchestrate, Plan, Order, Source, Transform, Fulfill and Return.


The Orchestrate stage describes the activities associated with the process integration and system enablement of the supply chain strategies. This comprises of business rules and enterprise activity and resource planning; human resources; elaborate network designs and technologies; data analytics; comprehensive contracts and agreements; timely regulations and compliance; pre-emptive risk mitigation; environment, social, and governance initiatives; circular supply chain management activities; balanced performance management; and much more.


The plan stage describes the activities associated with making roadmaps to operate the supply chain effectively. Planning is conducted for the subsequent prcesses – Order, Source, Transform, Fulfill and Return. This includes determining the input requirements; collecting information about the available resources; balancing and matching requirements with resources to determine planned operational capabilities and potential gaps in demand or resource utilization; and identifying the actions needed to correct these gaps.


The Order stage describes the activities associated with the purchase of products and services by customers, including attributes like location, methods of payment, pricing of products and services, the status of fulfillment, and any other order data metrics that could provide valuable insight.


The source stage describes the activities associated with material procuring, the ordering process, scheduling the order and its fulfillment process, the delivery process, payment collection, and invoicing, and the transfer of products and services.


The Transform stage describes the activities associated with the process scheduling and development of products, including production; assembling; disassembling; maintaining, repairing, overhaul functions, and more.


The Fulfill stage describes all the activities associated with executing customer orders or services, including scheduling delivery of the order, picking up the order package, packing of the order, shipping processes, installing, commissioning, and regulation complaint invoicing.


The Return stage describes the activities associated with the reverse logistic and backward flow of goods and services from the customer to the manufacturer. This includes any service components from a customer through the supply chain network, in order to diagnose challenging conditions, evaluate entitlement, and the disposition back into Transform or other circular activities of the SCOR Model.

By using common definitions among all facets of the supply chain, SCOR creates a standard by which industry professionals can gauge the maturity and effectiveness of a network and understand how it supports business goals. Take a deeper dive into the model:
Results are consistent. Implementing SCOR maximizes process efficiency and overall supply chain performance. Typical results include:

• Improvement of the operating income.
• 2x to 6x return on investment in the first year of operation.
• Improvement in the return on assets for non-current assets, technology, or capex investments.
• 30% faster digital transformation in project implementation.
• Reduction in IT operating expenses through efficient use of standard system functions.
• Improving the ongoing profits by 0.5%-1% per year.

Learn how to apply SCOR to your supply chain operations.

At the pinnacle of the SCOR Processes hierarchy is Orchestrate level – the Level 0 process “Orchestrate” is at the Strategy level and it conveys and manipulates all of the levels below it.

After the Level-0 processes, SCOR Model recognizes six major Level-1 processes; i.e.: Plan, Order, Source, Transform, Fulfill, and Return.

For each level-1 process, three or more differentiating level-2 processes exist. Each level-2 process contains level-3 process elements. These hierarchical relationships provide process classification.

When conducting a SCOR project, SCOR users may decide to move some lower-level processes, such as those involving sourcing, delivery, and procurement, into other Process sections. SCOR can serve as a flexible and customizable model that can be applied to multiple industries and situations, so the framework process locations are not rigid. If this is done, SCOR users should be careful not to duplicate processes.

Don’t miss your chance to gain an in-depth understanding of the SCOR model and demonstrate your commitment to your organization’s supply chain performance.

The fees include, APICS Membership, SCOR material (soft copy) and 16 hrs of online training divided in 4 session of 4 hrs each & associated GST.
