Just recently I took a closer look at some aspects of supply chain risk management in the automotive supply chain. Within limits insights gained from this industry could also be transferred to other examples.
Today I review an early work focussing on another manufacturing industry: the UK aerospace manufacturers.

This week I received my first full-version feedback on my PhD-thesis. A big thanks to my reviewer! Luckily I do not have too many adjustments to make, so I will use time during the easter holidays to commit the changes. I hope to be done by Tuesday, and I already got an appointment with my Professor on Wednesday, to officially hand over the dissertation.
I have read several articles by Mark Daskin (also reviewed another one here). So with him on the author list of today’s paper I think one can expect a clearcut research question, some kind of mathematical model, a fitting solution method and a definite answer to the underling problem. Well, let’s have a look!
This study takes a closer look at supply risk management, but this time from the perspective of several small companies. This article tries to answer the questions what risks small company owners (SCOs) see and how SCOs mitigate those risks.
This is already my second article (click here for the first) about managing supply chain risks in the chemical industry. This time by Paul R. Kleindorfer and Germaine H. Saad from Wharton and the Widener University. But this industry is quite interesting since it has to withstand a multitude of risks, so let’s get right to business:
Today’s article is from the late 90s, but sets a great example for research methodology in supply chain risk management. But don’t worry, I will focus on the results, since they’re very interesting as well. The objective of today’s article (Supply Chain Management in Food Chains: Improving Performance by Reducing Uncertainty) is to show strategies (here called principles) to reduce uncertainty, and at the same time show the beneficial effects of reduced uncertainty.
I am still abroad right now, but nonetheless I still want to keep the German share within the articles high. So I present to you the second article from German authors in just one week. On monday I already talked about Supply Chain Risk Management in the German Automotive Industry and so the second is today on how supply chain risk management is performed during a financial crisis.
Sometimes I am really amazed by the research topics of others. Even though I already read much about simulation and its potential benefits, up to now I have never seen a analysis of supply chain simulation performance on a larger sample. So I would like to share those insights here.
For many years sustainability risks have been largely neglected. Reputational damages caused by incidents like the Brent Spar platform can reach tens of millions of dollars. But in a supply chain context companies are not only held responsible for their own actions but also for the actions of their suppliers.
In their 2010 paper Foerstl et al. analyze supplier sustainability risk and develop and test a framework for its mitigation.
