Many companies are exposed to unpredicted supply chain disruptions due to increasing competiveness in an expeditious development of economic globalization. The objective of this thesis paper is to analyze the impact of disruptions in supply chain risks sourcing process, from a perspective of a Swiss OEM and to create a supply chain risk management purchasing tool, specified for the respective product group.
The key issue solved in this thesis is the development of a concept that allows a comprehensive approach in the treatment of procurement risks. The proposed supply chain risk management (SCRM) concept permits a coherent assessment of supplier-connected risks, as well as includes directly the gravity of the impact / loss, not only in terms of possible supply chain (SC) disruptions but also in respect of connected with it preventive mitigation measures.
The new offered supply chain risk management (SCRM) concept supports the company in development of a predictive and proactive disruption management, by identifying potential sources of supply chain disruptions from operational standpoint. Consequently, with the help of the risk profiling and risk prioritization, the personnel from the various departments such as logistics, program planning and purchasing can be supported with smart SCRM analytics on the daily basis.
As a result, this SCRM approach gives a helping hand in establishment of resilient supply chain. In addition, this approach requires adjusting the competences of the employees, as it follows the digitalization paradigm.
