White paper Supply Chain Network Management 2023
Boosting Robustness, Resilience and Responsiveness
What does the stable supply chain network of tomorrow look like? Those who come out on top will be supply chain networks that at their core have three capabilities: Robustness, responsiveness and resilience.
All reconfiguration measures are geared towards strengthening these three capabilities. Companies then benefit from the fact that a robust network has suitable measures in place to protect them against events with a lower severity and enables continuous operation. The more responsive the network is, the quicker the company is capable of making suitable adjustments and to continue with the performance.
What does the stable supply chain network of tomorrow look like?
The white paper illustrates the future challenges and requirements of the value creation network, addresses specific dimensions of successful supply chain network management, explains the need for a risk management and shows how companies can achieve a successful network in 5 steps.
In the past, the goals were almost exclusively the classic „competitive priorities” – costs, time, flexibility, quality and innovation. Now, robustness and resilience are at the top of the list.Prof. Dr. Thomas Friedli

Supply Chain Network Management Framework
This is why the Staufen supply chain network management approach focuses on the dimensions of robustness, responsiveness, and resilience alongside the classic performance criteria, showing how the loss zone can be kept to a minimum and a rapid return to a normalized performance level can be achieved.
All terms and explanations of our SCNM framework can be found in our SCNM glossary.
- The current supply chain shortages will continue to affect the economy for some time to come and will continue to cause delays throughout the value creation networks and cost increases in the industry.
- Companies need to respond more quickly to disruptions in the network and in raw material and energy supplies if they are to be better equipped to meet future challenges.
- Classic supply chain management is not sufficiently equipped to manage increasingly complex networks and ensure transparency along all processes and resources on all levels.
- State-of-the-art supply chain network management improves network performance by helping to align the individual segments across functions.
- Introducing a supply chain risk management ensures the ability to detect potential risks early and to strengthen network resilience.
- A well performing network helps companies to increase their competitive advantage.

More about Supply Chain Network Management
Today, many companies operate within global networks. Yet external factors, such as material backlogs, extreme weather events or trade policy disputes harbor risks in cooperation that are often recognized far too late. The consequences are serious and usually expensive. How do companies succeed in establishing the necessary transparency early on?Read more
The network of parties involved in the value creation process is becoming increasingly complex – especially due to the globalization of sales markets, production sites and procurement markets. Those who best master this complex value network and professionally manage the „customer-to-customer process,” i.e., make the goods available efficiently at the right time and in the right place, have a significant competitive edge.Read more
