As one of the most important part of supply chain, the supply disruption has more influence than other disruptions. Once the supply disruption occurs, that may lead to serious consequences; even break the whole supply chain. This paper analyses the composition of supply risk, addresses an effective method to mitigate supply risk, i.e., dual-supplier or multi-supplier supply model. In order to choose suppliers for the whole supply chain, a mathematical model is developed and verified by a numerical example.
