Resiliency of your supply chain implies the ability to withstand unanticipated events, big or small. Your resiliency depends on many factors.
Supply Chain Planning
Supply chains need to be digitalized to become resilient not to just react and respond. Predicting potential issues and being ready is very different from virtually running around performing what-if this and what-if that!
S&OP technology is a rough modeling of the supply chain that does not take into account the variability of resource availability and delivery of raw materials as well as likelihood of disruptions.
At the start of the pandemic the demand (new patients) for PPEs went up dramatically. There were limited amount of supplies and surge in demand for N95 masks, ventilators, hospital beds etc.
We are at a point to deploy planning systems that are accurate and intelligent enough to more or less run the supply chain autonomously.
Model accuracy cannot come from simple S&OP solutions that are now so prolific. S&OP systems by themselves are a rough model of the supply chain.
