Project Details


After the COVID-19 pandemic, more research is needed to understand how the impacts of global events differ among alternative network structures in the presence of supply chain risks, and how relevant these potential risk mitigation strategies are for Small and Medium Enterprises(SMEs). Thus, the main purpose of this project is to show how SMEs can configure their supply chains, and cost-effectively mitigate the risk created by major disruptions.
