Devising an Effective Supply Chain Governance System for a Mining Industry Client with the Help of SpendEdge’s Supply Chain Risk Assessment

Dec 21, 2018

Mining Industry Analysis

The past one decade has been a rollercoaster ride for companies in the mining industry. Commodity prices have reached both historic highs and lows, with operational entities shifting irrevocably in the face of the digital revolution. Demands for efficiency have skyrocketed, while the means to invest in new programs to support such efficiency have often fallen away with prices. However, new technology trends in the mining industry, especially in the form of mining software and innovations in water resilience, are offering exceptional opportunities for efficiency gains and are worth investigating for adoption across the sector. Moreover, mining industry companies who embrace digital trends can expect a more nimble and profitable business, with improved decision-making and increased employee empowerment.

The Need for Supply Chain Risk Assessment

The rapid globalization of supply chains has made companies vulnerable to disruptions such as economic unrest, demand fluctuations, or natural or man-made disasters with potentially damaging long- and short-term impact on businesses. Supply chain risk assessment is the risk assessment process of taking strategic steps to identify, assess and mitigate the risk in your end-to-end supply chain.  Enterprises need a resilient supply chain risk assessment process to minimize the negative impact of disruptions on revenues, costs, and customers. Moreover, understanding and effectively managing supply chain risks is a key capability for developing and managing resilient supply chains.
