I purchased this book to better understand the SCOR (Supply Chain Operations Reference) model. I started to read the book cover to cover, but stopped to scan the book after chapter 3. The book is basically a project plan and a case study for implementing Supply Chain Operations. I found very little to educate the novice in the details of SCOR. As for the "how" approach, any good project manager would be able to come up with a project plan as described within the book. If you already understand SCOR and want an off the shelf project plan, then this book may be helpful. However, I did not find it very useful in understanding the underlying processes.

I wanted to understand the SCOR model and how it integrated with Lean Six Sigma...I was not disappointed...The book contains many roadmaps, working templates and other useful information which will enable a person who is familiar with basic supply chain terminology and process improvement methods to build teams to improve their supply chain...I especially like the roadmaps which contain information describing how to sequentially deploy SCOR methods using a phased timeline...This book is one I can recommend to Lean Six Sigma people to understand how our consulting methodology can effectively integrate within the SCOR framework.

I would not call this a handbook; because a handbook is in my opinion supposed to fully educate you on how to complete a project. This book does supply information, but in a way that the reader is left with more questions and this is where Supply Chain Excellence, owned by Peter Bolstoff, a consulting firm looks to obtain new business. Also this book pushes you to think you need ProccessWizard, which is not true, most of what is in it, that I have found, you can build yourself or use Microsoft's Visio software.
But if you have knowledge of Supply Chain Performance and an understanding of Lean Manufacturing and six sigma you can fill in the gaps without having to invite SCE to clear up your confusion.

This book is a must-have reference for anyone involved with supply chain management; whether academic or professional. The central focus of the text is the Supply-Chain Council's Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model and how to improve any supply chain through its use. As advertised, the book does a masterful job of taking the reader through a step-by-step approach to a SCOR project. Best of all, this second edition incorporates the experiences and learnings of another 30+ projects over the first edition. Readers gain the benefit of the authors' vast experiences in such projects, as they share their best pratices and pitfalls-to-watch-for. The book will easily return its value may times over!

This book can be used as a practical workbook for conducting a supply chain diagnostics review. It is based on SCOR model and typical process improvement approach.

The publishing date in the listing on Amazon is 2007 but reviews date back to 2003! What am I missing?
