Abstract: The main hypothesis of this study is that Colombian companies in the pharmaceutical sector use at least the 50% of processes in the third level of SCOR model. This hypothesis is supported in national regulation requirements for the sector, which emulate international standards. Economic and cultural environments allow a second hypothesis: companies apply less than 75% of best practices suggested by the SCOR model. Four sub-sectors were studied: veterinary, medicinal plants, medicines and vitamins. These sectors represent approximately 90% of the pharmaceutical sector, and their study repesents a first approach in learning about trends in the complete sector.
