Global SCALE Risk Initiative | MIT CTL

hat is the MIT Global SCALE Risk Initiative?This initiative studies the impact of supply chain risks on uniquely global supply chains. To launch this initiative, MIT conducted a global survey of supply chain risks and risk management.

Motivation

Supply chains are going global like never before. And these far flung supply chains now encompass suppliers and customers from many diverse regions and cultures around the world. The safety and performance of many companies’ supply chains often depends on trading partners that they have never met or have perhaps visited only once. Since people around the globe tend to disagree on many topics (religion, human rights, conservation, women’s rights, etc) there is no reason to think that they will agree on issues such as on-time delivery, product safety, forecast liability, and risk preparedness.

Supply Chain Management for IT Infrastructure Services Using the SCOR Model

In 2010 Gartner identified the 10 major forces that are actively reshaping the future of IT services and the outsourcing market*. Amongst the much hyped Cloud, Security and Consumerization were included the Value Chain and Componentization -- items that don’t get so much Press hype but, according to Gartner, are fundamental forces that should be addressed. The IT Factory describes operating within these forces by applying Supply Chain Management for IT Infrastructure Services: Using the SCOR Model.

Hans van Aken describes how supply chain management for IT infrastructure services can use the reputable SCOR Model. He describes a position where Business demand is met with an efficient IT Supply.

Van Aken notes: ‘This model is actually drawn as a demand-driven IT supply chain which puts the “pull” of the customers’ demands in the spotlight rather than the “push” of available technologies and supplies. The choice for this demand-driven depiction encourages many in IT to first understand the demands of the customers (and the customers’ customers) and then secondly define and organize appropriate supply chains to meet the demands.’ The beauty of the content as devised by van Aken is the detailed practical guidance for delivering the Model. The Model is clearly set out and readers will be re-assured to know that the fundamentals are based on the successes of the tried and tested SCOR approach.

By thinking ‘out of the box’ and using established successes in complementary industries it’s just possible that Hans van Aken has delivered a solution to two of Gartner’s imperatives.
