In a recent issue of Supply Chain Digital magazine, Palisade's Randy Heffernan explored the relevancy of risk analysis solutions for supply chains.
"Managers need to be able to answer questions like: 'What is the probability this critical part will arrive on time?' and 'What are the chances of failure at this point in the process?'" says Heffernan. "[Risk analysis techniques using Monte Carlo simulation] allow decision makers to perform trade-off analysis among expected costs, quality acceptance levels, and on-time delivery distributions.
