One of the keys to sustaining customer commitments and long term business success is planning for supply chain interruptions. Interruptions can be caused by labor issues, supplier financial crisis, weather, natural disasters, product quality, business system failures or global financial crisis. In failing to plan, you plan to fail. This presentation will provide the framework for planning and mitigating supply chain risk. We will discuss the preventative actions Nissan took to reduce the supply chain business impact when faced with challenges and how it affected their ability to recover from a 9.0 magnitude earthquake.
