Supply Chain Architecture Life Cycle

The Gartner Supply Chain Architecture Life Cycle (SCALe) is the process of managing the entire life cycle of each capability within your supply chain. For each supply chain capability, the life cycle includes inception; design and launch (physical, financial and digital); use for delivery of customer perfect orders; tracking of performance; refinement; and, ultimately, retirement of the processes, structures and governance related to that capability. It provides a standard for development and deployment of a strategy into operation.
