How much, on average, does it cost to have a mitigation-plan set up? Is it more than 3%? Then you're done.

Disruption Hurt Perfomance

15 years ago, serving as materials Manager for a major multi-national oil company in Brazil, PETROBRAS forced cementing and fracturing services companies of oil wells to manufacture chemical products with commodity local raw materials, maintaining the confidentiality of their formulas. This that at the beginning was considered to be an alarming news, with the passing of time was understood it as an important solution to deal with the lack of foreign currency and exchange controls implemented in many countries, that undoubtedly could have significantly hurt the continuity in the operations. Alternatives such as this, are short and long term solutions

@SP, yes... use them, but also evolve and change them over time. Last year's good plan may not be appropriate today.

Good points to reduce supply chain disruptions. All mature organizations have these points in paper and company official documents but the key is to proactively follow these and take actions when needed. Decision making is another critical thing.

@Hailey: Yes but it does not apply only for SCM. Good communication and visibility options are vital for any system and process since those two factors play a deciding role on the business that you run.

@Jennifer, it seems to me that this is a sign that good communicatoin and visibility needs to penetrate further into the supply chain to include these "sub tier suppliers".

@nimantha.d: I am a firm beleiver that most of life is less about what happens than what you do with it and about it. It is shocking to hear that many organizations wait to assess risk until the event is upon them. This sort of pre-thinking lets organizatoins react better when the  inevitable glitch happens.

Thanks @jbovit. Took a quick look at the findings, and this stood out for me: "Resilinc found that a number of companies are highly dependent on these sub-tier suppliers but do not always have the visibility to quantify the degree of dependency and accurately understand their exposure.  Additionally, Resilinc found that more than 50% of all sites analyzed are located in just four countries: Taiwan, China, the USA and Japan."

Not surprising to see the 4 countries listed given how the electronics industry works in certain hub countries, but am surprised that visibility issue is still hard to quantify.
