Checklist for Supply Chain Risk Management

Checklist for Supply Chain risk management

Geographical risk events are currently top-of-mind among purchasing and supply chain managers as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. While risks like quality control issues and mechanical failures are generally easier to predict, geographical risk events are much more difficult to anticipate. As a result, measuring and managing this array of risks is a complex task. 

Range of risks

The coronavirus pandemic is just one of the many risk factors that can impact supply chains worldwide. Other recent examples are Brexit, the US-China trade war, natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes and earthquakes, and of course SARS in the public health context. As supply chains are ever-more complex and interconnected on a global level, they are potentially also more fragile, since they are increasingly impacted by events at both a global and a local level. As a result, the risk and volatility factors are growing.

Digital tools can play a key role in enabling supply chain managers to remodel their supply chains when disruption occurs and, by doing so, to reduce the negative impact of the disruption.
