The COVID-19 pandemic has sent shockwaves through industries and forced many companies to either scale back their operations or shut down altogether. As the effects of the pandemic evolve, companies are identifying response efforts to implement the changes necessary to stabilize within the new normal and strategize for what is next. 3D recovery models for factories need to be agile and resilient in order take into account the pandemic and be better prepared for the future.
From an article by Kevin Cruickshanks at ECM.
3D recovery models addressing issues related to widespread quarantines, extended closures, travel restrictions and a global health crisis aim to protect business functions through mobilization of the workforce, ensuring its flexibility to become operational as quickly as possible, and identifying resources necessary to stabilize operations and the supply chain.
Service providers, contractors and material suppliers are returning from temporary closures as factories resume production, but their mobilization to usual levels may take time. Management needs to decide the strategic supply chain processes necessary to optimize operations with both speed and efficiency to ensure responsive, effective service. The need for speed, coupled with restricted availability due to a sudden high demand within the supply chains, increases costs rapidly. A re-engineered supply chain should have the resilience and agility to adapt to shifts in demand or disruptions and adapt to sudden changes faster as the new normal shapes.
