The latest resilience news from around the world

A new paper by researchers from the University of Liverpool and the SP Jain School of Global Management presents the results from a systematic literature review of 153 papers related to supply chain resilience.

The paper, ‘A systematic literature review of the capabilities and performance metrics of supply chain resilience’ has been published by the International Journal of Production Research.

Abstract (published verbatim)

Research on supply chain resilience (SCRE) capabilities and its performance measurement has been growing in recent years. However, the investigation of these concepts has primarily been conducted independently despite the interdependence of these concepts. A systematic literature review of 153 papers was conducted based on the principles of rigour, transparency and replicability required by the methodology. For the first time, we structurally reviewed the 11 SCRE performance metrics categories and its capabilities in SCRE Capabilities-Performance Metrics Framework (SCPM) developed based on the three resilience dimensions (readiness, response and recovery). The framework enables researchers to seek fundamental knowledge and to pursue further research regarding SCRE assessment. This study also provides practical value offering a guidance for decision-makers considering the trade-off among different capabilities and performance metrics.
