The Impact of Transportation Disruptions on Performance of E-Collaboration Supply Chain
In this paper, we analyze the impact of a transportation disruption on supply chain performance by using system dynamics simulation. Performances of three different supply chains with Internet e-collaboration tools are compared with the assumption that a transportation disruption occurs within two echelons in a five-echelon supply chain. Numerical results are shown to reveal that from Non-collaborative supply chain to Collaborative Forecasting and Collaborative Planning (or VMI) supply chains more and more robust is revealed under certain transportation disasters.
