Lead time reduction of military supply chain (MSC) processes is essential for well-functioning military organisations. MSCs are complex and uncertain systems, including interdependencies between actors and processes. Flexibility is needed for MSCs to deal with complexity and uncertainty. Furthermore, reducing lead times contributes to the...

Climate change is an omnipresent issue in politics, industry, science, and society. Scientist knew of its existence for several decades, but only recently has the perception of it shifted from a solely environmental problem to a matter of international security. Climate change is thought to impact the likelihood of extreme weather events,...

Big data analytics (BDA) and supply chain resilience are both present and important topics, but research on the relation between the subjects is limited. This also holds for the translation of the subject for a specific industry. This research therefore addresses this relation and translates it to a comprehensive partial resilience assessment...

Global climate change has results in a higher frequency of extreme disaster events and is therefore a serious challenge in disaster impact management. Disaster risk is composed of several components, such as vulnerability, susceptibility, exposure and the probability of occurence and intensity of a hazard. Vulnerability has become a topical...

Urbanization makes cities more vulnerable in the face of climate change risks. Understanding urban growth under climate change can help planners optimize land allocation and development strategies that are resilient to the impacts of climate change. However, the complexity and uncertainty of climate change hinder the urban...

Good supply strategy that can improve the logistical chain involves taking into account the complexity that a specific good is situated in. This research takes improving the bicycle supply chain within the Netherlands armed Forces as a use case. Aside from the goals for the use case of bicycles, the aim was also to fill the knowledge gap of...

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, far-reaching measures were introduced to isolate people and reduce the chance of transmission among people. In the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh, the camps were locked down for months. As a result, economic dependencies between the refugees and host communities which were built in previous decades were cut...

Cities and regions around the world are experiencing an increase in extreme weatherrelated disruptions as a result of climate change. These disruptions are testing the integrity of energy systems including electricity grids. An emerging concept to assess the vulnerability of systems to disruptions is the concept of resilience. Resilience is used...

One of the substantial causes for food insecurity in an area is drought. Drought is a very insidious disaster. Unlike rapid onset disasters, like an earthquake or flood, it increases its grasp over an area over time. The longer the drought lasts, the more an area is destroyed leaving devastating effects that can last many years. The impacts of...
