Resilience, Viability, and Digital Twins in Supply Chain Management 

In this talk, we discuss practical methods and digital tools to design and manage disruption-resistant supply chain networks to mitigate the ripple effects and shortages. We debate about extensions of supply chain resilience towards viability. We present the Viable Supply Chain model. Finally, we discuss the role of digital supply chain twins and platforms in managing resilience and viability, illustrate practical applications using industry examples, and project the lessons learned on possible future developments in supply chain management.
