Supply Chain Resilience and Recovery

Helping you understand your current risks and help set up your supply chain for the future

In times of severe supply chain disruption, quick thinking and agile responses are needed to understand supply chain risks and to plan for the future. The first step in any crisis is to understand the extent of the problem – analysing issues across the various tiers of the supply chain to understand the risks, capacity constraints and impact on demand.

Once understood we need to conduct scenario planning to identify how these issues flow down to other tiers to then deploy contingency measures to minimise further risks. We need to quickly focus on ramping up the supply chain to meet increased demand.

History has shown that organisations that have rebounded most effectively post-crisis are those that have reacted to restructure their cost base to focus on immediate risks but can also plan for the supply chain recovery phase.

Organisations need to be able to respond to:

Current and immediate supply chain risks

 

Capacity constraints

 

Financial risks

 

Inventory shortages through the supply chain

 

Supplier financial stress

 

Changing demand profiles

Our Supply Chain RRR (Risk-Resilience-Recovery) methodology helps organisations with short term expertise to focus today and also how to position best for tomorrow.
