Supply chains worldwide have been battling various risks and challenges for some time. Each challenge not only threatens to disrupt operations, but also may have a negative financial impact on business performance and prevent an organization from meeting the demands from stakeholders, customers, shareholders, and regulators.
Supply Chain Council members have reported that less than half of enterprises have established metrics and procedures for assessing and managing supply risks and organizations lack sufficient market intelligence, process, and information systems to effectively predict and mitigate supply chain risks. Does this sound like your organization?
f so, supply chain disruptions can be extremely costly. A disruption in your supply chain can cost millions of dollars in lost time, energy and resources. Their effects are both direct (e.g. halting production altogether) and indirect (e.g. on stock values). Taking steps to help reduce supply chain disruption is the only way to avoid these costs.
Proactive discovery and visibility of risks is the key to the prevention and management of supply chain disruptions.
