Abstract: The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) contracted the CSIR to investigate and propose methods to improve its logistics and inventory accounting capabilities. The CSIR proposed that a supply chain management approach should be followed using the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model. The SANDF indicated that the augmented SCOR model (Bean, Schmitz and Engelbrecht, 2009) should be extended into a single logistics process which should include a lifecycle perspective as prescribed by ISO-15288:2008 (SANS, 2008). The South African Department of Defence developed a Logistics Strategy to determine the requirements for a logistic process. Analysing the Logistics Strategy Map, six perspectives were identified, namely: system; process; quality improvement; asset management as prescribed by the National Treasury; supply chain; and life cycle perspectives. The first five perspectives were adequately addressed in the augmented SCOR model for the SANDF (Bean, Schmitz and Engelbrecht, 2009). The SCOR Version 9.0 model (Supply-Chain Council, 2008) and the augmented SCOR model for the SANDF did not make provision for the life cycle of logistics products, that is, matériel, logistic services and facilities. However, the life cycle perspective needed to be integrated with the augmented SCOR model. The integration of the life-cycle perspective as prescribed by ISO 15288:2008 into the augmented SCOR model constituted a single, comprehensive, rigorous and tailorable logistics process within the SANDF that allows them to make quantum improvements to their logistics service delivery.
