As supply chain risk management has transitioned from an emerging topic to a growing research area, there is a need to classify different types of research and examine the general trends of this research area. This helps identify fertile research streams with great potential for further examination. This paper presents a systematic review of the quantitative and analytical models (i.e. mathematical, optimization and simulation modeling efforts) for managing supply chain risks. We use bibliometric and network analysis tools to generate insights that have not been captured in the previous reviews on the topic. In particular, we complete a systemic mapping of the literature that identifies the key research clusters/topics, interrelationships, and generative research areas that have provided the field with the foundational knowledge, concepts, theories, tools, and techniques. Some of our findings include (1) quantitative analysis of supply chain risk is expanding rapidly; (2) European journals are the more popular research outlets for the dissemination of the knowledge developed by researchers in United States and Asia; and (3) sustainability risk analysis is an emerging and fast evolving research topic.

Supply chains (SCs) can be managed at many levels. The use of tactical SC planning models with multiple flexibility options can help manage the usual operations efficiently and effectively, whilst improve the SC resiliency in response to inherent environmental uncertainties. This paper defines tactical SC flexibility and identifies tactical flexibility measures and options for development of flexible SC planning models. A classification of the existing literature of SC planning is introduced tha...

Supply chain flexibility is widely recognized as an approach to manage uncertainty. Uncertainty in the supply chain may arise from a number of sources such as demand and supply interruptions and lead time variability. A tactical supply chain planning model with multiple flexibility options incorporated in sourcing, manufacturing and logistics functions can be used for the analysis of flexibility adjustment in an existing supply chain. This paper develops such a tactical supply chain planning mod...

The emergent field of green supply chain management has been rapidly evolving with a geometric growth in the number of academic publications in this field. A number of literature reviews have been published focusing on specific aspects of green supply chain management such as performance measurement, supplier selection/evaluation, analytical modeling efforts, and some others with broader areas of focus. This paper presents a thorough bibliometric and network analysis that provides insights not p...

The law of entropy tells us that everything in the universe is descending into chaos, unwinding like a clock. Living things, including human beings, are engaged in a constant struggle to maintain order and structure. The essence of life is resisting entropy, or creating order out of chaos. Living things do not just react to their environment; rather, they participate in complex feedback loops that shape their environment. Mammals, fish, and insect colonies build elaborate physical structures and...

This paper presents a robust network design model for the supply of blood during and after disasters. A practical optimization model is developed that can assist in blood facility location and allocation decisions for multiple post-disaster periods. The application of the proposed model is investigated in a case problem where real data is utilized to design a network for emergency supply of blood during potential disasters. Our analysis on the tradeoff between solution robustness and model robus...

The article discusses the management of supply chains, arguing that risk management solutions that are developed as possible ways to address supply chain disruptions should be evaluated for their cost efficiency as of 2014. Topics include supply chain efficiency, segmentation, regionalization, centralization, and resource management.

Sustainability, the consideration of environmental factors and social aspects, in supply chain management (SCM) has become a highly relevant topic for researchers and practitioners. The application of operations research methods and related models, i.e. formal modeling, for closed-loop SCM and reverse logistics has been effectively reviewed in previously published research. This situation is in contrast to the understanding and review of mathematical models that focus on environmental or social ...

Abstract Knowledge organization (KO) and bibliometrics have traditionally been seen as separate subfields of library and information science, but bibliometric techniques make it possible to identify candidate terms for thesauri and to organize knowledge by relating scientific papers and authors to each other and thereby indicating kinds of relatedness and semantic distance. It is therefore important to view bibliometric techniques as a family of approaches to KO in order to illustrate their rela...

Abstract Resilience, defined as the ability to recover quickly and effectively from a disruption, is critically important for supply chains. Yet, it has not been quantified as frequently as supply chain robustness. In this paper we review the existing metrics for supply chain resilience and introduce a new metric, titled the net present value of the loss of profit (NPV-LP). We test these metrics on a small supply chain problem consisting of one supply and one demand node for a perishable good ov...

Abstract Sustainable development is imperative for companies as society pressures for wealth environment are increasing. For this reason, all the decisions related with the design and planning of companies must include societal and environmental worries to achieve the desired sustainable development. Additionally, as market uncertainties are present, companies have to deal with financial risk associated with management decisions. This paper explores these challenges and proposes a mixed integer ...

Integrating sustainability into freight transportation systems (FTSs) is a complex and challenging task due to the sheer number of inherent sustainability risks. Sustainability risks disrupt the socio-economicenvironmental efficiency of freight operations and act as impediments in the development of sustainable freight transportation systems (SFTSs). The area of sustainability risk management is still unexplored and immature in the operational research domain. This study addresses these research...
