Individual Video Assignment: Applying the SCOR Model to Operations in Developing Countries

Introduction

Imagine that you are an operations manager of either manufacturing, service, or distribution corporation or in the military sector and there is a crisis in the supply chain because of sourcing materials from developing nations. In the competitive environment of your organization, it is increasingly becoming a competition between supply chains rather than a competition of competitors. Your supervisor has learned the hard way that a one size fits all approach is not working and your organization needs to create a plan that takes into consideration the most fitting supply chain management approach and model tailored to the specific organization processes and the environment in which the organization is operating. He/she has asked for your help to create a plan that will be the most efficient and adaptive possible for the organization.

Instructions

For this assignment, you will create a PowerPoint presentation which you will present via Zoom. In your presentation, you will explain the challenges and barriers to implementing the SCOR Model in developing countries. You will create a plan for adapting the model to these environments that can be applied to local scenarios and conditions. SCOR model encompasses all the activities of suppliers, customers, material flows, and all market interactions.

The SCOR model consists of five basic processes, Plan (P), Source (S), Make (M), Deliver (D), and Return (R). The SCOR modeling approach starts with the assumption that any supply chain process can be represented as a combination of the processes P, S, M, D, and R. You will need to create an operations plan that considers the organization from an economic, environmental and social perspective and measures performance based on net impact on profit, people, and the planet. You will explain how you will create the most efficient supply chain in these types of markets and how your plan can be applied to any market that your organization could wish to penetrate or source materials for your supply chain network. lastly, you will explain how you will develop a process, develop tailored performance metrics, and identify appropriate applications of best practices to the model.

Your PowerPoint should consist of 10-15 slides and your video presentation should be at least eight minutes in length. In addition, your PowerPoint presentation should contain the following:

Detailed speaker’s notes

References and citations from at least four sources

Visually appealing pictures or animations
