Abstract [en]

There is no consensus on the supply chain management definition of resilience. To aid in evaluating thedynamic behaviour of such systems we need to establish clearly elucidated performance criteria thatencapsulate the attributes of resilience. A literature review establishes the latter as readiness, responsivenessand recovery. We also identify robustness as a necessary condition that would complement resilience. We findthat the Integral of the Time Absolute Error (ITAE) is an appropriate control engineering measure ofresilience when it is applied to inventory levels and shipment rates. We use the ITAE to evaluate an often usedbenchmark model of make-to-stock supply chains consisting of three decision parameters. We use both linearand nonlinear forms of the model in our evaluation. Our findings suggest that optimum solutions for resiliencedo not yield a system that is robust to uncertainties in lead-time. Hence supply chains will experience drasticchanges in their resilience performance when lead-time changes.
