Integrated supply chain risk management performed by logistic assistance systems
Presentation held at the International Conference on Harbor, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation - HMS 2009, Teneriffa, Spanien
The occurrence of risks usually leads to damages at relevant enterprise and moreover causes further risks at other partners. Consequently, more and moreenterprises need to deal with risks. Especially, small andmedium sized enterprises (SMEs) are forced to make statements concerning risks and intended actions, particularly regarding the dynamically fluctuating system load. There are no applicable tools and methods known to assess those risks and possible actions in order to control them profitable. The new SCMSoftware generation Logistic Assistance Systems (LAS) opens new application fields in global supply chains. The novel LAS approach is currently being intended to provide a basis for an integrated Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) approach. With the aid of LAS, different risk key performance indicators (KPIs) can be obtained which can be used in order to assess risks and actions quantitatively and proactively; additionally to experience to what extend the risks can be minimised.
