Supply network disruption and resilience: A network structural perspective

Yusoon Kim, Yi-Su Chen, Kevin Linderman
2015 Journal of Operations Management  
This paper not only offers a new perspective of supply network disruption, but also suggests a useful analytical approach to assessing supply network structures for resilience.  ...  Graph theory helps to conceptualize a supply network and differentiate between disruptions at the node/arc level vs. network level.  ...  Moreover, we hope that our summary observations, presented in the form of propositions, serve as a stepping-stone that stimulates more research to further understand supply network disruption and resilience  ...

Facilitating Vulnerable Supplier Network Management Using Bicriterion Network Resilience Management Approach

Nina Shin, Sangwook Park
2020 Applied Sciences  
Our case study is based on a real-world highly connected global manufacturing firm based in Korea as a test environment to evaluate a proposed bicriterion network resilience model using resilience and  ...  The results show that the effectiveness of a firm's performance with respect to the entire supply chain may increase or decrease based on its embeddedness and connectivity within the supply network.  ...  Recent research streams follow that the supply chain exhibits the properties of a complex adaptive system (nonlinearity, adaptation, self-organization, emergence) [70] , and that such system now should  ...

Survivability of Multiagent-Based Supply Networks: A Topological Perspective

H.P. Thadakamalla, U.N. Raghavan, S. Kumara, A. Albert
2004 IEEE Intelligent Systems  
A robust network can sustain the loss of some of its structure or functionalities and maintain connectedness under node failures, whether the failure is random or is a targeted attack.  ...  Although fairly simple business processes govern these individual entities, real-time capabilities and global Internet connectivity make today's supply chains complex.  ...  Her research interests include supply chain management, graph theory, complex adaptive systems, and complex networks.  ...
