THE MITIGATION OF RISK IN RESILIENT SUPPLY CHAINS:

DISCUSSION PAPER

 

One of the biggest changes to the business landscape over the last twenty years or so has been the significant increase in the level of risk confronting supply chains. We have moved from a world of relativestability – and hence predictability – to an environment which is characterised by turbulence anduncertainty with a consequently heightened potential for disruption to business activity.

 

Supply chains are increasingly being impacted upon by external events such as natural disasters and changes in the geo-political arena as well as through events within the supply chain. Whilst natural disasters, seemingly on the increase and attract much attention, often the greatest risk to business continuity is systemic, i.e. risk is embedded in the supply chain because of managerial decisions concerning the design of the supply/demand network.
 
 
There can be no doubting that in recent years the business environment has become more turbulent and hence less predictable. Whereas in the past it was standard practice to plan ahead – with a time horizon of months, if not years – now the challenge is to find ways to become much more responsive to events
as they happen. Traditionally, businesses have been forecast-driven i.e. they have been run on the basis of projections of future demand, often based on past history. Such an approach works well when thebusiness environment is relatively stable; clearly it is less effective in the volatile conditions that many
organisations face today.
 
 
It is also the case that many firms are dependent on supply chain networks that were designed some years ago when the world was a more certain place and the assumption was that the future would be much like the past. Now, in the significantly changed circumstances that confront many businesses, it may be the case that those supply chain solutions are no longer fit for purpose.
 
 
Conventional supply chain design was often based on so-called ‘network optimisation’ principles. More often than not the factor being optimised in those exercises was the firm’s operating cost. Thus the aim was to design a network which would minimise logistics costs for the organisation, particularly transport
and storage costs. Also the analysis was static, not dynamic – meaning that it used the costs prevailing at a single point in time as the basis for the calculation. As a result those companies operating logistics networks designed ten or twenty years ago may need to revisit those design decisions and re-work the analysis to incorporate the major changes that have taken place in the cost parameters.
