Standards and Models in SCM


Been a long time since did any posting on this blog. Since I joined Patni have been reading about lots of standards and models that are in use in SCM projects.

Here are some standards which I think will last for quite some time, as they have been tried and tested on quite a few big projects:

1) Supply Chain Operations Reference Model (SCOR) - This is a generic model which has been established by the Supply Chain Council (SCC) and is gaining a lot of acceptance.

2) Rosettanet - This is a standard for exchanging data between 2 applications. This standard is primarily for hi tech industry like computers, electornics, telecommunication, etc. Many Fortune 100 companies like Motorola, etc are using this.

3) Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Standard (VICS) for CPFR implementations - This standard is gaining wide acceptance for many CPFR implementations.

Do let me know if you have come across any new ones that are catching on in the market.
