ABSTRACT
Modern supply-chains are very complex, with many parallel physical and information flows occurring in order to ensure that products are delivered in the right quantities, to the right place in a cost-effective manner. The robustness of supply networks is recognized as being critical for individual organizations and for the economy as a whole. On an individual firm basis, companies have been aware of the need for disaster recovery and crisis management for some considerable time, particularly in areas such as information technology and production facilities. The concept of supply-chain as a network of interrelated entities that combine to enable the satisfaction of customer demand is well established.
