Supply chain risks negatively affect the success of an OEM in automotive industry. Finding relevant information for supply chain risk management (SCRM) is a critical task. This investigation utilizes machine learning to find risk within textual documents. It contributes to the supply chain management (SCM) by designing (i) a conceptual model for supply risk identification in textual data. This addresses the requirement to see the direct connection between data analytics and SCM. (ii) An experiment in which a prototype is evaluated contributes the requirement to have more empirical insight in the interdisciplinary field of data analytics in SCRM.
