Sourcing strategy analysis in the settings of supply chain (SC) flexibility in regard to single vs. dual sourcing has been a well-explored area over the last two decades. In recent years, single vs. dual sourcing analysis has been increasingly introduced in SC disruption management. Since most of the decision-support models for SC sourcing strategy adaptation in the case of disruptions presume real-time information and coordination, the issues of big data and business intelligence needs to be…

Simulation Applications to Structural Dynamics in Service and Manufacturing Supply Chain Risk Management
Facility disruption impact on supply chain performance is studied using the example of outsourced academic journal publishing services affected by recent floods in Chennai. A discrete event
Supply chain resilience for managing the ripple effect in Industry 4.0 for green product diffusion
PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to examine (1) how the recovery speed using promotional investment and (2) distributed production using additive manufacturing (AM) improve the resilience of the
Integrating supplier selection with inventory management under supply disruptions
An integrated model for supplier selection is proposed, considering inventory management and inbound transportation, and reveals that criteria in supplier selection should be given a different priority depending on the characteristics of the items, and the effectiveness of disruption mitigation strategies depends on the disruption characteristics.
Literature review on disruption recovery in the supply chain*
This study analyzes state-of-the-art research streams on supply chain design and planning with both disruptions and recovery considerations and classifies existing research streams and application areas of different quantitative methods subject to different disruption risks and recovery measures.
Low-Certainty-Need (LCN) supply chains: a new perspective in managing disruption risks and resilience
The results allow the identification of an LCN SC framework, concepts and technologies for its implementation as well as missing themes and new research questions which contribute to a better understanding of SC disruption risks.
Supply chains, as networks of companies, are focused on creating greater value to meet market needs with aim to achieve higher profitability. In this regard, all activities and processes within
Resilience strategies to recover from the cascading ripple effect in a copper supply chain through project management
As the supply chains are growing and becoming more interdependent, the vulnerability and the chances of supply chain failure also increases. The supply chain industry is severely affected due to the


Integration of aggregate distribution and dynamic transportation planning in a supply chain with capacity disruptions and the ripple effect consideration
The dynamic issues in integrated logistics planning in the SC can be addressed, and an intelligent solution to an important problem of SC management has been proposed.
A stochastic inventory management model for a dual sourcing supply chain with disruptions
This work proposes a single period stochastic inventory decision-making model that could be employed for capturing the trade-off between inventory policies and disruption risks for an unreliable dual sourcing supply network for both the capacitated and uncapacitated cases.
The Ripple effect in supply chains: trade-off ‘efficiency-flexibility-resilience’ in disruption management
This study aims at presenting the Ripple effect in supply chains. It develops different dimensions of the Ripple effect and summarises recent developments in the field of supply chain (SC) disruption
A dynamic sourcing strategy considering supply disruption risks
This study presents a formulation that supports decision-making by determining the optimal number of standby suppliers required to respond to supply failure risks and indicates the benefits of cost savings, unlike other dynamic models that use multiple suppliers simultaneously.
A Quantitative Analysis of Disruption Risk in a Multi-Echelon Supply Chain
We demonstrate how system resilience can be improved by focusing on a supply chain network as a whole. We analyze inventory placement and back-up methodologies in a multi-echelon network and view
