Resilience in Manufacturing and Supply systems

How to respond to COVID-19 implications in manufacturing and supply chains and increase resilience

Global Value Chains are undergoing profound changes, with important implications for the manufacturing and production ecosystem. In 2019, we developed a framework to anticipate the ongoing reconfiguration of Global Value Chains and derive key imperatives for businesses and policy makers. The emergence of COVID-19 is accelerating the change of global value delivery models, with unprecedented consequences for manufactures and supply chains. Mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on manufacturers and supply chains requires both new approaches and new forms of collaboration to increase overall resilience. We are bringing together C-level executives from the manufacturing ecosystem to exchange best practices and incubate new collaborations and responses to value chain disruption.
