Supply-Chain Optimization Template
Tuesday, 01 December 2009
The Supply-Chain Optimization Tem -
plate (SCOT) is an instructional guide for
identifying, evaluating, and optimizing
(including re-engineering) aerospace-oriented
supply chains. The SCOT was
derived from the Supply Chain Council’s
Supply-Chain Operations Reference
(SCC SCOR) Model, which is more generic
and more oriented toward achieving a
competitive advantage in business. Utilizing NASA’s Parachute Re furbishment Facility as an example, concepts
contained in the SCC SCOR Model were
modified and expanded to be applicable
to the unique processes, restrictions, and
regulations found in aerospace environments.
Templates of the optimized
processes were created, samples were
developed, and validated effective processes
of implementation were created. These
templates, samples, and processes were
integrated into a formal step-by-step set of
descriptions of only those processes applicable
in aerospace settings. The inclusion
of these specific process steps, coupled
with the exclusion of generic SCC SCOR
Model process steps that are not applicable
in aerospace settings, is expected to
reduce the amounts of time needed to
both optimize supply chains and train personnel
to optimize supply chains.
