Competition is no longer based on just bare company versus company business models, but supply chain versus supply chain. These create opportunities for the development of different supply chain models, such as the supply chain operations reference (SCOR) model. However, the existing models have not considered the early parts of the raw material suppliers’ situations in the firms of developing countries (DC). In addition, the supply chain in DC has unique challenges. The successful model is delayed by these challenges. In order to incorporate the DC situation, it requires examining the firms supply chain characteristics in the DC. A questionnaires survey and semi-structured interview questions are used to collect the current practices. Based on the survey results analysis, we have identified the supply chain characteristics. These characteristics help to define the new requirements. This paper presents the proposed changes related to the deliver and source processes. Future work will consider the adaptation of the entire model.
