  • An integrated approach for analysis of essential factors of a resilient supply chain   Order a copy of this article
    by Ajeet Kumar Yadav, Cherian Samuel 
    Abstract: Resilience is the ability of the system that helps to sustain and evolve in the uncertainty by absorbing the vulnerabilities and potential disruptions. The building of the resilient supply chain is a long term continuous process that involves the identification and implementation of factors responsible for nurturing the resilience ability. This research work attempts to identify the essential factors of the resilient supply chain and analyzing these factors through a structural modeling approach. The prominence-causal diagram and MICMAC (Matrice dImpacts croises-multiplication applique and classment) analysis reveals that factors belong to two broad categories, i.e., influential (driving) and influenced (driven) groups, whereas from the hierarchical structure we obtained that developing the risk management culture in the supply chain is the most important factor for a resilient supply chain. Thus, this research work will not only help the academicians and decision-makers to understand significant factors of a resilient supply chain but also help the managers to allocate the available resources suitably to improve specific resilience dimensions or capability. Moreover, considering this study, a reliable checklist can be developed for reviewing the organizations approaches and performances towards the building of a resilient supply chain.
