Integrated assessment of operations strategy

Stanisław Strzelczak
2018 Scientific Papers of Silesian University of Technology. Organization and Management Series  
Traditional approach to operations strategy uses a unilateral perspective: it solely focuses on a business or a company point of view; but supply chains provide evidence of shared and collaborative strategies  ...  It is mostly explained by non-integral and inconsistent assessment. Therefore an integrated framework for assessment was conceptualized to eliminate the reported dysfunctionalities.  ...  The former may vary from organizational units, through supply chains, to the production ecosystems. The latter is typically bound in time. Sometimes it is punctual.  ...

Each individual matrix block was discussed by subject experts who identified specific challenges and implications for each matrix element and rated its relevance (high, medium, low).  ...  Overall, the most important singular element was to understand risks in the organizational/business dimension. The least importance was attributed to the adapt/learn phase.  ...  It is necessary to implement actions to adapt the organization to new situations and prevent the recurrence of such an event. Also, elimination of 'blind spots' in the system is crucial.  ...

Cyberphysical Security Through Resiliency: A Systems-centric Approach [article]

Cody Fleming, Carl Elks, Georgios Bakirtzis, Stephen C. Adams, Bryan Carter, Peter A. Beling, Barry Horowitz
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are often defended in the same manner as information technology (IT) systems -- by using perimeter security. Multiple factors make such defenses insufficient for CPS.  ...  We argue that such methods and theory should assist stakeholders in deciding where and how to apply design patterns for resilience.  ...  They are also vulnerable to supply chain and insider attacks [8] .  ...
