The Hidden Risk in Your Supply Chain

From msnbc.com: “Bristlecone, one of the industry’s most trusted supply chain business advisors and solution providers, today announced the publication of a study, “The Hidden Risk in Your Supply Chain,” carried out in conjunction with Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The research, which sought to gauge the ability of corporations to identify and manage the internal risk to their supply chains, provides revealing insight into this critical and often overlooked area of corporate risk. The web-based survey questioned executives from manager to C-suite level at 90 companies with annual revenues over $500 million.”

“The survey shows that most companies invest in understanding and minimizing external risk factors to their supply chain, and are using supply chain management (SCM) systems to optimize their supply chain and ensure precise supply and demand plans. However, the study also reveals that most have not paid enough attention to their internal supply chain systems — risk factors clearly within their control. In fact, 77% of the executives surveyed noted that their own company’s information systems pose a high or medium risk.” The Hidden Risk in Your Supply Chain
