Capítulo 8. Assessing & Managing Resource Related Risk

The short-term impact of rising resource prices was addressed in the financial analysis of Chapter 7. The implications of resource scarcity in the medium and long terms however, require a more holistic assessment. The aim of this chapter is to outline how the inventory developed in Chapter 5 can be used in the identification and treatment of resource related risk within your supply chain. Resource related risk is viewed through in the context of Supply Chain Risk Management and a process for the assessment of resource related risk is outlined. This process is illustrated using the Alimentos BrAle inventory.
