Managing Supply Chain Disruptions categorizes and review the substantive research contributions relating to managing supply chain disruptions. With a primary emphasis on formulating directions for future research, the authors focus on significant research and practical findings. Managing Supply Chain Disruptions reviews the general area of supply chain disruptions and examine classifications of disruptions which can be used to provide insights into the disruption management process. It reviews the literature in the emerging field of disruption risk management which attempts to identify specific risks associated with supply chain disruptions. This is followed by a review of conceptual/empirical research with a focus on providing general insights into how one or more organizations have managed the risk associated with disruptions. Given that designing robust supply chain networks are a key feature of managing disruption risk, the authors examine the relevant research in this domain. A d tailed analysis of prior research targeted at managing specific risks (e.g., product, supply, operations/process, and transportation risks) is presented, and finally, directions for future research are discussed.
