Global and local supply chains move essential products from producers to consumers around the world, linking distant communities to economic hubs and back. These chains are increasingly exposed to a range of disruptions, some localised, such as extreme weather events, others more wide-ranging, such as the impact of COVID-19. CSIRO provides evidence and insight to equip managers with the tools to build resilience in supply chains, through a suite of integrated metrics aimed at understanding structural resilience, criticality and network reliability, delivered through the Value Chain Analytics Platform.
