Running Head: THE INTEGRATED SUPPLY CHAIN 1Creating sustainability and high demand value in the supply chain through the SCOR modelStudent’s NameStudent IDClassTeacher’s Name.
2THE INTEGRATED SUPPLY CHAINIntroductionHaving an integrated supply chain gives way for the manufacturers to have a look into production processes through the multiple suppliers and diverse platforms in following of components and materials to wherever they are found, with considerations of environment sustainability. One of such tools is the renowned supply chain operations reference (SCOR) model. It is enables the supply management upon the tool usage in addressing, improving and communicating the supply chain management resolutions in a company (Bolstorff, Rosenbaum & Amacom, 2012). In the address of sustainability, the 5 SCOR model plays a vital role. With the constant supply of various products, somehow an ecological balance is achieved. A good case is where theraw materials cannot be sourced if there is no demand that requires a product to be made. Chances of having wastages are minimized. It means that the exploitation in the process of exploration of the raw materials is likely not to happen since there is optimal use of the resources(Balakrishnan, 2010). The return process ensures that the company takes the responsibility of leaving the environment clean. Notably, the foundation of an efficient supply chain is the existence of the purchasing and supplies department. It is in this department where all the ordering documents are initiated. The model is key in explaining the business process by the whole supply chain. It also offers a basis or deciding the actions to take in a move to improve therespective processes. There are five processes in this model, and each one of the predecessors must happen to trigger the occurrence of the other. This model has been termed to be the most promising model in the strategic decision-making process for the supply chain. It is evident how the model hinderswastage and saves on some of the costs involved in the normal supply chain. The model is an
