Measuring the Resilience of Supply Chain Networks
Sahlmüller, Till; Hellingrath, Bernd
With increasing supply chain complexity, it gets more likely that disruptions ripple through the supply chain network, affecting supply chain performance. As the severity of disruptions depends on the supply chain network structure, it is important to assess the network structure in terms of its resilience. This article presents the results of a literature review (LR) to provide a comprehensive overview of measures used for evaluating the resilience of supply chain networks. The results indicate a wide range of measures applied in literature, focusing on either nodes, paths, or subgraphs of the network. The identified measures are compared regarding the structural characteristics they study and the aspects of supply chain performance they investigate.
