A Reengineering Methodology for Supply Chain Networks Operating Under Disruptions

  • Alain Martel
  • Walid Klibi


Goods are procured, produced and distributed to customers using supply chain networks (SCN) involving several facilities owned by a company, or a set of collaborating companies. These networks are engineered or reengineered through strategic decisions on the number, location, capacity, and mission of their production–distribution facilities. Decisions on the selection of suppliers, subcontractors, and 3PLs, and on the offers to make to product-markets, may also be involved.
