Managing Risks of Supply-Chain Disruptions: Dual Sourcing as a Real Option
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Master Thesis
This is the seventh contribution to my series on doctoral and master dissertations on Supply Chain Risk Management. This again is a master thesis from the MIT. 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.
Today we have a look at current research regarding the improvement of resilience within a supply chain.
In their 2012 paper “Supply chain redesign for resilience using simulation” Carvalho et al. analyze supply chain resilience on the basis off a Portuguese automotive parts manufacturer.
In today’s post I would like to highlight how the concepts of resilience and sustainability can be aligned.
Resilience is often interpreted as a property of a supply chain most often associated in a risk management sense; sustainability on the other hand, usually refers more to social and environmental goal orientation. So how can these concepts be aligned?

Finally, the dissertation is complete. Last week I finished working on the comments and handed in the final work. The process now consists of three more steps that can take another three to four month: First, I have to do a (really) short presentation of my thesis topic. Second, I have to wait for two written evaluations by two professors of the university. Last, I have to defend my thesis, hopefully some time around December.

The kayak tour last weekend was great. We had good weather and a lot of fun. Even though our boat lost in every speed competition.
Afterwards we spent a night in Berlin, where I had the chance to eat dim sum (chinese dumplings) again at Yumcha. They remind me a lot of my semester in Hong Kong. Especially the Siu Mai.
