The purpose of this paper is to improve construction logistics by introducing an adapted version of the SCOR (Supply Chain Operations and Reference) model. Sub-processes and metrics related to the Deliver and Source processes in the SCOR model that are in need of changes to adapt SCOR to the construction industry settings are identified.
By observing the Deliver and Source processes and metrics in the SCOR model at a construction site, suggestions for important changes that need to be made to the SCOR model are given. This is done by using case study as a research method for theory building.
Findings from the case study result in proposals for new Deliver and Source sub-processes, changes in current sub-processes and new metrics. These changes constitute the first version of the Builder’s SCOR model (BSCOR).
This paper presents the work of finding important changes related to the main processes Deliver (delivery of materials from supplier to site) and Source (receiving materials at site) in the SCOR model. Future work will consider important changes related to the main processes Make, Deliver (from site to customer), Plan and Return.
This paper analyses which parts of the SCOR model that need (or not need) to be adapted to embrace construction industry settings, resulting in a draft of a model based on the SCOR model that comprehends construction industry settings. Accordingly, this can lead to a better adaption of the processes and metrics to map, control, and coordinate the supply chain which can result in an increased profit for construction companies.
