A Study of the Effects of Robust Supply Chain Strategies on Resilience and Vulnerability Under Supply Chain Disruptions—A Case of Taiwanese Consumer Electronics Manufacturers

The purpose of this research was to determine the extent to which Taiwanese consumer electronics manufacturing firms implement robust supply chain strategies, and the effect that those strategies have on the firms’ supply chain operations in the event of a supply chain disruption. This topic is especially relevant in today’s competitive business environment, as many firms are deciding to implement lean supply chain strategies. This study will determine whether or not those firms with robust supply chain strategies are able to more effectively deal with interruptions in the supply chain. Data collection is necessary for this research, therefore two types of data will be observed. Results from questionnaires will be examined in combination with information gathered from two interviews with executives at Taiwanese manufacturing firms. Upon examining the data, several conclusions can be made regarding the implementation of robust supply chain strategies by electronics manufacturers in Taiwan. It is evident that many manufacturing firms have utilized one or more of the robust strategies described in this study. There is a clear correlation between the implementation of robust supply strategies and the resilience of a firms supply chain operations. It can be concluded that the implementation of robust supply chain strategies has a positive influence on a firm’s supply chain resilience. Those firms that implemented these strategies are more likely to react quickly to a supply chain disruption, and they are more likely capable of continuing production in the event of a disruption. On the other hand, this research also points out that the implementation of robust supply chain strategies has a negative effect on a firm’s vulnerability to supply chain disruptions. Those firms that have implemented these strategies are less likely to suffer major setbacks in production due to a disruption in the supply chain. The results of this study are valuable to supply chain managers in any industry, as well as researchers who wish to further investigate robust supply chain strategies.
