Supply Chain Risk Assessment Applying System Dynamics Approach - Case Study: Apparel Industry

Marzieh Mehrjoo, Zbigniew J. Pasek

Abstract

A remarkable increase in the demand and supply uncertainty, as the primary sources of supply chain risk and other sources such as: capacity constraints, supply variability, parts quality problems, long lead times, war and natural disasters have increased the necessity of assessing and managing the risk in the supply chain. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of two categories of risk, demand uncertainty and delays, on the performance of an apparel supply chain. A system dynamics approach was used to study the behavior and relationships within the supply chain of this industry. The proposed model facilitates the study and identification of the critical components of the supply chain. In addition, the model provides a tool to generate multiple business scenarios for effective decision making.
