Abstract

As competitions between firms becomes more fierce, they are constantly finding new ways to win the competition. They employed various initiatives such as outsourced manufacturing and increased product variety for increasing profit and customer satisfaction. Another strategy employed is supply chain management. However, managing a supply chain presents certain challenges. There are a lot of rsks like demand changes, transportation disruptions and natural disasters which can threat the stability of a chain member and increases the vulnerability of the whole supply chain. Examples of this include the terrorist attacks on the world trade center on September 11, 2001, the SARS epidemic in south-East Asia and the recent H1N1 epidemic which led to costly disruptions in the supply chain. In this research, via an examination of the literature, paper investigates the probable reasons of disruptions in a supply chain, and then classifies the risks which can cause disruption in a supply chain, paper will also highlight the strategies which can control and mitigate the risk effect on the chain. Finally, an automotive supply chain in Malaysia is used as a case study and paper will simulate the conceptual model of that for highlighting these elements of supply chain disruption.
