Supply Chain


Many companies in the manufacturing sector are presented with supply chain challenges every day ranging from identification of new suppliers and materials through manufacturing transportation and distribution to customers. It is not uncommon for both complex, multi-national original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and small or mid-sized manufacturers in the U.S. to be faced with challenges. From reducing risk and volatility to identifying and collaborating with suppliers through understanding the true cost of the supply chain, MEP's Supply Chain Optimization initiative provides an opportunity to assess and implement a strategic solution.

Supply Chain: Risk Management

Within the volatile global supply chain, risk is an inherent component that must be accounted for. In this session you will learn how to identify the general categories and evens that most adversely affect supply chains, and the benefits of developing an effective overall risk mitigation strategy. The strategy includes creating a risk management plan which documents mitigation strategies, describes trigger events, and establishes monitoring metrics and activities. Participants will also learn how the financial impact of risk is determined using a tool referred to as Value at Risk(VaR).

Program Objectives:

  • Understand the impact of risk events for which no risk management strategy exists
  • Recognize the necessity of a risk management strategy
  • Learn how to estimate the financial impact of a potential risk event
  • Incorporate financial considerations within the Total Cost of Ownership model
