Supply Chain Risk AnalysisModel complete Supply Chains (from Supplier to Product to Customer) and use those models to visualize risks within individual chains and across your entire organization.
Whether your organization manufactures or distributes products, or provides services to customers, the supply chains that produce those products or services are complex and vulnerable to disruption.
In support of Enterprise Risk Management, RAPS (Risk Assessment for Products and Services) is designed to help model supply chains in order to analyze and assess their vulnerabilities and the risks they face.
Capitalizing on the underlying modeling information already gathered from Business Continuity Management efforts in Toolkit (facilities, suppliers, customers, business processes and IT components) RAPS adds supply chain-specific elements including supplies, products and production lines to enable end-to-end mapping of production processes and the supply chain components on which they depend. Data can even be fed from existing ERP systems.
Even in the most complex global environment, the robust design of RAPS provides both graphical and tabular views of production lines to help:
- Pinpoint the threats and vulnerabilities that pose operational and financial risks including single points of failure, supplier over-reliance and raw materials choke points.
- Map applications and other technology systems associated with individual production processes
- Capture committed SLA's, seasonal and geographic dependencies
- Visualize representations of supply chain models for decision support
RAPS is an extension of eBRP's belief that the Business Continuity Industry must transform itself from a plan-centric focus to a risk-centric focus if it hopes to retain its value in today's volatile global business environment. Demonstrating eBRP's thought leadership, RAPS is a pivotal step in transitioning BCM from a peripheral to an essential operational business process.
