Abstract [en]

Supply chain risk is a challenge, because they can disrupt the supply of components and raw

material to the company. The Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) is reality in today’s

resource-optimized supply systems. Disruption can cause an increase of production cost. In more

serious production breaks it can jeopardize the fulfillment of contracts.

The complexity of supply network increases risk as the rate of dependency on both single and

dual sourcing increases either jointly or separately. When suppliers are placed far away, the risk

of interference in time increases, which is the case of today’s global companies is a common

issue.

A framework has been developed in this study based on previous literature to investigate the

sources of the supply-side risk and its categories, to implement the mitigation strategies the

company can reduce the probability of occurrence of any undesired event and negative impacts.

The proposed framework was applied, in form of a case study, on the global truck manufacturer

Scania. Two managers of the company were interviewed by the author with this purpose.

The main findings indicate that when the framework was applied, mitigation strategies were

effective in truck manufacturing industry such as Scania. In the case of Scania, two more risk

sources that were not included in the framework are monitored by the company, namely safety

and health and security. In summarizing, the establishment of the risk mitigation strategiesmapping

up, follow up, and continuous improvement, leads to improvement of the OEM. Formal

training programs to achieve continuous improvement and the participation of the crossfunctional

groups in the mapping and follow up practices to create a successful supply chain risk

management.
