Variability in Supply Chains - Linking the OM-Triangle with SCM

  • Martin Poiger (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationScience to science


The OM-Triangle (Lovejoy, 1998) shows three possibilities to address uncertainty: safety inventory, safety capacity, or reducing variability. Variability in supply
chains is analyzed within this conceptual study, leading to a framework organizing the different types of variability. Furthermore, concepts from supply chain
management are linked to theOMtriangle.
