Evaluating and Improving Supply Chain Robustness

Variability has increasingly impacted customer service performance and cost, but the cumulative nature of these impacts is only partially understood by supply chain stakeholders. In order to better serve its customers, General Mills seeks to understand where its supply chain lacks resiliency against variability, and how supply chain robustness can be quantified, monitored, and improved in order to support General Mills’ shift toward agility.
