The muscle to mitigate risk
The joint team first performed a maturity assessment and saw an opportunity for more advanced, proactive risk management. The team developed a “heat map” to identify high risk suppliers and components and recommend mitigating actions. To perform the analysis and understand revenue impacts, the team created a “supply chain digital twin,” a virtual replica of the company’s global supply chain. Finally, Accenture performed a stress test, which subjects the digital twin to pre-defined, disruptive scenarios and provides an overall resiliency score. Accenture then transferred the knowledge to the company’s internal Supply Chain Resilience team so it could take the wheel.
