WP6 Robustness Modelling Assurance

Supply chains, and particularly global supply chains, are exposed to a large variety of risks, which can compromise the performance of suppliers and the supply chain as a whole. A failure of a supplier or subsystem results in a loss of supply or in the worst case in a total disruption of the supply chain.

The tasks in WP6 wil laim to identify risks in the ManSys supply chain and produce contingencies to mitigate against these risks. The work package will consider commercial, managerial and technical risks and will aim to develop buffers as well as diversity of supply to diminish the identified risks. In particular criteria will be developed to select suitable suppliers for the ManSys network.

Resultswill alsobe encompassed into a Life Cycle Analysis for additive manufacture using the ManSYS network, this will be verified during demonstration activities.
