The aim of this study is to design, build and validate a scale for the measurement of Saudi industrial
Organizations' SC Management Practices (SCMP), and also to evaluate its efficiency at various
SCM measurements. The analysis identified 20 constructs of (SCMPs) based on a comprehensive
literature review; namely Strategic Partnership of Suppliers (SPS), Customer Relationship (CR),
Information Sharing (IS), Information Quality (IQ), Postponement (PST), Agreed Vision and
Goals (AVG), Sharing of Risks and Rewards (SRR), Lean Manufacturing (LM), Total Quality
Management (TQM), Organizational Culture (OC), Information and Communication Technology
(ICT), Benchmarking and Performance Measurement (BPM), Agile Manufacturing (AM),
Outsourcing (OUT), Just In Time Manufacturing (JIT), Green SC Management (GSCM), Reverse
Logistics (RL), Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and
SC Integration (SCI), and four SCM performance structures in particular namely; Flexibility
Perspective (FLP), Efficiency Perspective (EFP), Customer’s Perspective (CSP), Product
Innovation Perspective (PIP). A survey tool based on the existing literature was developed and
relevant data were collected from 351 Industrial Saudi organizations on this tool. In the data
analysis the validation of the instrument is mainly carried out with confirmatory factor analysis in
terms of unidimensionality, durability, convergent validity, discriminant validity, nomological
validity, and the associated validity criteria. A parsimonious instrument that makes an important
contribution to the SCM literature is generated by the results of this research. The instrument will
allow an enterprise to incorporate various SCMPs, to keep track of the implementation status, and
then to evaluate SCM performance to the SCM dimensions.
