ASCM SCOR Standards Free to All to Improve Their Supply Chains

by Carolyn Mathas

The Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) is making the Supply Chain Operations Reference Digital Standard (SCOR DS) and Digital Capabilities Model (DCM) are now available to the public as free, open-access tools for improving supply chain processes and practices. Previously, they were only available to ASCM members. Because of chronic supply chain disruptions, however, there will now be free access to the tools.

The SCOR standard is designed to help organizations evaluate and improve their supply chain processes. More than 2,000 supply chains participated in the development of the model, and more than 5,000 supply chains have built themselves on the foundation of SCOR since it was released 15 years ago. The SCOR DS is a fully linked, platform-agnostic framework linking business processes, metrics, best practices and technology into a unified structure.

The SCOR DS also connects with the new DCM for supply networks. The DCM is a reference model to guide the development of digital supply networks. The connection of SCOR DS and DCM elements and metrics enables companies to cross-reference their supply chain functions and processes by breaking through functional silos and making their supply chains more dynamic.

The SCOR DS and the DCM join ASCM’s other free, open-access standards, the ASCM Enterprise Standards and the Global Health Maturity Model. To access all of these tools, visit
