“An effective supply chain security risk management programme enhances organisational resiliency and protects shareholder value.”
Where do the risks lie?
Supply chains risks should be considered across the following areas:
Operations, the production environment and processes to ensure goods are produced of a sufficient quality, volume and integrity to be economical.
Supply & Distribution, the logistical activities that ensure goods move through the physical supply chain to reach the end users.
Demand Management, the agility and scalability of both operations and supply activities to meet demand surges without undermining the supply chain architecture.
