Early Warning System for Supply Chain Risk Management

Build a robust supply chain with a holistic approach

What is Supply Chain Risk Management?

Mitigating supply chain vulnerability is key to growth

Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) is a crucial area within the field of operations management and logistics, focusing on identifying, assessing, managing, and mitigating risks throughout the supply chain. The supply chain encompasses all activities involved in the production and delivery of a product or service, from raw materials sourcing to manufacturing, distribution, and the final delivery to the consumer. Given this breadth, the potential risks are numerous and varied, ranging from operational to financial, geopolitical, environmental, and beyond.

The globalization of supply chains, coupled with increased complexity and interdependencies among suppliers, has heightened the potential impact of disruptions. High-profile incidents, such as natural disasters affecting production in key regions, cybersecurity breaches leaking sensitive data, or the global COVID-19 pandemic disrupting international trade, have underscored the importance of proactive and comprehensive supply chain risk management. 

With effective SCRM, organizations can not only protect themselves against potential losses but also gain a competitive advantage by ensuring the reliability, efficiency, and sustainability of their supply chains.
