Yes it has. The Scapula and humerus forms the shoulder joint and they both coordinate to give overhead abduction, that is abduction above 90 degrees.

for every 30 degree movement of the arm or the humerus the scapula moves by 10 degrees. We cannot have overhead abduction is our scapula is stabilized or does not move.
