Measuring supply chain resilience

  • Supply shortages faced in products and resources from semiconductors to natural gas in recent years have had impact massive on global economy, but such challenges are not new for supply chain professionals. Many major events in the past have disrupted supply chains: 9/11 attack in New York, Tsunami in Japan to name a few, but COVID19 have had the biggest and widespread impact in the modern times. Even though supply chain resilience being a term coined in early 2000’s, its usage and importance has increased since then. With the curiosity of assessing the current state of sup-ply chain resilience literature and finding a resilience measurement method which is a one-fit for all supply chains in the manufacturing industry of Vorarlberg, the following research project was undertaken. Research is carried out with mixed methods, using a systematic literature review followed by expert interviews. In the conclusion of the research the author argues that there is a significant difference in the understanding of the term resilience within industry, there is a lack on the need for a meas-ure for resilience. The ways in which the structure of an organization impacts the level of resilience, foreseen benefits of digitalization and technologies for resilience are also dis-cussed. A comparative analysis on the SCR measurement methods discovered in literature, resulted in recommending Resilience index for on-time delivery proposed by Carvalho et al for the mentioned industry.
