The supply chain operations reference (SCOR) model is developed and maintained by the supply chain council (SCC). The SCOR model is a reference model that can be used to map, benchmark, and improve supply chain operations. SCOR provides companies with a basic process modelling tool, an extensive benchmark database, and defines a set of Supply chain metrics. The software ARENA is a commercial simulation tool that can be used for simulation modelling in various applications. An integration of SCOR and ARENA provides the Supply Chain analyst with a comprehensive and dynamic tool. This paper reports oil the ongoing work to integrate the SCOR methodology and a discrete event simulation tool. SCOR is basically used to study the static operations of a supply chain. However, there is also a need to study the dynamic effects e.g. of changes in production rate, poor quality in raw materials, and other effects related to the "bullwhip" behaviour of a supply chain.
