As previously mentioned, the goal of this book is to assess the effects of manufacturing practices and risk factors on supply chain performance. This chapter introduces a series of structural equation models to assess the relationships between three types of supply chain risk factors—supply risks, demand risks, production process risks—and supply chain performance indices. The models are measured and tested as described in the methodology chapter.
