Developing a Resilient Supply Chain

Topics: Emergency Management, Information Technology and Cybersecurity, Supply Chain, Terrorism, Transportation,

This paper examines various approaches to develop a more resilient supply chain in light of research which indicates that modern supply chains are at greater risk than their managers recognize, with threats ranging from natural disasters to terrorism to cyber attacks. It does so primarily qualitatively with a thorough review of current scientific publications and other literature, but does also explore quantitative secondary resources to characterize the supply chain itself, supply chain management, supply chain risks, and supply chain resilience. By the conclusion of the paper, the authors propose four primary strategies to allow organizations to resume operations quickly and efficiently after a disturbance.
