Question description

Discuss the SCOR model’s five functions (Plan, Source, Make, Deliver, and Return) that are shared by supply chains. Does every supply chain contain all of these five functions?



  • When producing goods, different production strategies, such as “make to order,” “make to stock,” “assemble to order,” or “engineer to order” can be pursued. However, when providing services (car washing, hair styling, etc.), not all of these strategies can be pursued. An organization cannot really “stock” services (in other words, you can’t have five car washes sitting on a shelf in the same way you can have five cans of soup sitting on a shelf). Do the stages of the SCOR model apply to operations in all of these areas (goods producing vs. service provision, and using any of the production strategies)? Search the Internet for a company and discuss which of these approaches (goods producing or service providing) and which of the production strategies the company's operations fit in. Support your response on the basis of the SCOR model and your research.

  • In 2011, Japan experienced an earthquake, resulting in a tsunami. These natural disasters caused a great deal of damage and a significant loss of life. From a supply chain and operations management chain perspective, what were the implications for SCOR processes? Which of the SCOR model’s five processes discussed above would have been impacted by such an event? Should planning for future events like this impact the strategy of a company? Support your response with your research.
  • The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response.

    Your posting should be about 1 page (400 to 500 words) in length.
