Supply-Chain Council Announces Winners of 2009 Supply Chain Excellence Awards
Date:5/15/2009

ATLANTA, May 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- United States Transportation Command, SRA International Inc., United States Army CECOM LCML, and Intelligroup Inc. are the winners of the 2009 Supply Chain Excellence Awards, announced here today at the SCOR Seminar - Focus on Defense and IT Industries.

The Supply Chain Excellence Awards are bestowed annually by the Supply-Chain Council (SCC), a global not-for-profit organization and owner of the Supply-Chain Operations Reference (SCOR(R)) Model. The awards recognize organizations that understand the critical role of, and are committed to optimizing, supply chain performance.

United States Transportation Command was awarded the Global Award for Supply Chain Excellence, which is selected from the winners of four other categories. USTRANSCOM had also been awarded and previously presented with the US Department of Defense Award for Supply Chain Operational Excellence. While this project was initiated and led by USTRANSCOM Strategy, Policy, Programs, & Logistics Directorate (J5/J40), the scope and recommendations of this effort span the entire DOD supply chain and include USTRANSCOM's strategic supply chain partners, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the General Services Administration (GSA). USTRANSCOM serves as the Distribution Process Owner (DPO) for the Department of Defense.

The DSO team estimates that the DOD can save between $300-700M(1) in annual supply chain costs with commensurate increases in customer service levels of 20-45%(2). All five opportunities are based on practices commonly used in commercial supply chain organizations today, and are being measured using the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model metrics adopted by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), and already being implemented at USTRANSCOM and DLA.

SRA International Inc. and United States Army CECOM LCMC received the Award for Supply Chain Operational Excellence. The Class IX (Retrograde) Project thought leadership and commitment to process excellence pushed the envelope in adapting SCOR throughout this organization. This submission was in recognition of the work and commitment that the US Army's CECOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) has formally made to Supply Chain Excellence and the adoption of SCOR as its preferred methodology and model for identifying and optimizing their supply chains in support of the Warfighter.

Intelligroup Inc. was given the Award for Supply Chain Management Technology Excellence. "This project provides a great example of integrating shop floor execution between subcontractor and manufacturer with clear mapping to SCOR mega processes in order to gain process and data visibility of upstream and downstream supply chain," said Dr. Tom Janoshalmi, Chair of the SCC Technical Development Steering Committee and Manager, Corporate Strategy, SAP & Business Process Management Lead - Americas (SAP).

Winners are selected by the Supply-Chain Council's Technical Development Steering Committee (TDSC) based on the nature and complexity of organizations' improvement project and their ability to demonstrate value. Recipients of the awards include some of the world's most influential organizations representing a wide spectrum of industries.

The awards are based on four principal criteria:

  • Accurate demonstration of the implementation of the SCOR reference model
  • Nature and the complexity of the project undertaken
  • Ability to objectively demonstrate the value of the project
  • Ability to characterize the project and effectively communicate its significance

"On behalf of everyone at the Supply-Chain Council, I congratulate the winners of this year's Supply Chain Excellence Awards," said Joseph Francis, Executive Director, Supply-Chain Council. "We greatly appreciate their efforts, and the efforts of all past award winners, in contributing to the advancement of supply chain practices and the application of those practices in the pursuit of improved operational performance."
