Supplier risk assessment and monitoring for the automotive industry

Risk monitoring implies two different actions: Continuous risk assessment and actions, as soon as pre-defined limits are reached.

So this article sheds light on the risk monitoring, from an article by Blackhurst, Scheibe and Johnson (“Supplier risk assessment and monitoring for the automotive industry”).

Many companies are struggling with the idea to use modern optimization techniques to support decision making in strategic supply chain management.

But beside mathematical modeling of the supply chain there are other methods as well, such as network based approaches. In their 2005 paper Blackhurst, Wu and O’Grady present a more intuitive decision support method with the goal to improve decisions within the supply chain context.

An empirically derived agenda of critical research issues for managing supply-chain disruptions
Year: 
2005

What do professionals in the domain of supply chain management think about disruptions? How do they prepare for them, how do they act when a disruption occurs?

Blackhurst et al. (2005) answer these questions in their work about “An empirically derived agenda of critical research issues for managing supply-chain disruptions”.The authors are using three different empirical methods to achieve this goal empirically: Case study, surveys and focus groups.
