By Verena Brenner

Verena Brenner presents a scientific method for the research, size, and administration of provide chain disruptions. A terminological, theoretical and sensible foundation for the research of offer chain disruptions is constructed to create a constant and transferable examine framework. to higher comprehend why convinced provide chains are extra liable to disruptions than others, this framework is then validated empirically in chilly chain logistics. in line with a survey with nearly 60 offer chain experts from creation, distribution and retail of meals and prescription drugs, drivers for resilience and vulnerability of provide chains are pointed out via evaluating how partnerships and transactions have been prepared. Thereby, recommendations for assuring the robustness of provide chains are depicted and connections to company-internal hazard administration are highlighted.

Thus, this thesis shall facilitate the identification, monitoring, and controlling of disruptions in supply chains and the choice of the adequate interface design. Wherever possible, reference will be made to a specific type of supply chain, namely cold chains, to derive more precise statements and assure applicability of results.

Nevertheless, it implies substantial adaptation and re-alignment of strategies and production plans to a new situation and may result in concurrency (Cochran, Patz & Rowe 1978) or competitive advantage (Vedres & Stark 2010). g. g.

However, in this case, not only commercial interests play a role, but also political factors (Glick & Taylor 2010), whereby the termination of supply is not seen as the final effect, but as a side effect or as a mean to achieve another ultimate goal.
