Abstract

As supply chains increase in complexity due to outsourcing, globalization and volatility in environment, the risk of disturbances may increase and variability is beyond a company's control. Being so, companies need to adopt disturbance-management practices at strategic, tactical and operational levels. The main objective of this paper is to propose a conceptual model on strategies to mitigate supply chains disturbances under the supply-demand perspective. A literature review on disturbance-management practices is presented. Also, a qualitative approach is used to identify some strategies used by actual supply chains to mitigate the disturbances that have occurred
