Supply Chain Risk Mitigation: Modeling the Enablers
Year: 
2006

Everybody concerned with the task of developing risk mitigation strategies has a list in his mind of different factors influencing a company’s exposure to risk and if you think about it: those factors are probably related.

Example: The number of suppliers for one component can have a huge impact on risk, but the necessity of a high number of (redundant) suppliers may itself be affected by the trust you built with your main supplier. Both trust and having multiple suppliers affect supply chain risk by themselves, but they are also related.

Paper

Impact of Demographics on Supply Chain Risk Management Practice

This is somewhat of the fifth contribution to my series on doctoral dissertations, apart from not being a doctoral thesis but a master thesis on Supply Chain Risk Management. Nonetheless, an immense effort and dedication is spent on these works only to find the results hidden in the libraries. So the goal is raise interest in the research of my peers.

Negative default dependence in supplier networks
Year: 
2011

If people talk about disruptions and network effects within the supply chain, the associations are most often negative.

But on the other hand there are companies profiting from these smaller and larger disruptions: competition.
