How and Why to Measure Supply Chain Resilience
Presented at APICS, September 2016: How and Why to Measure Supply Chain Resilience – Quantifying resilience to improve decision-making.
Market volatility; corruption; unfair trade practices; environmental issues; and a relentless stream of geopolitical, natural, and man-made events challenge today’s supply chain management leaders constantly. As such, these industry professionals are increasingly recognizing and valuing the rewards of resilience in their networks. However, a lack of effective guidance and inadequate information on how to quantify resilience make it difficult for supply chain managers to take a logical, data-driven approach to making resilience investment decisions.
This presentation will explore the benefits of measuring supply chain resilience, proven techniques and processes used for measuring, and the decision-support tools and platforms that can provide valuable assistance.
