Funded by ESRC IAA and led by Professor Lenny Koh and Rolls-Royce, Project Future Proof Supply Chain Resilience and Security (FPSCRS) aims to develop a resilience index scorecard system to track and compare facility level supply chain resilience. This would provide a quantitative scale of resilience measurement whilst capturing qualitative insights.

The tool enables high value manufacturing industries, such as civil aerospace, automotive and rail, to benchmark their own supply chain resilience and how they are responding to and managing risk and security issues. In addition, governments and the advanced manufacturing industry will be able to benchmark and reduce uncertainty and risk, minimise vulnerability and threat and improve supply chain security and resilience.

A policy brief will be generated in consultation with partners and key stakeholders in the supply chain and government departments for green economy recovery post COVID-19, focusing on supply chain resilience and security. It will result in transformational industry and policy impact economically, environmentally and socially for UK PLCs, as well as the global supply chains.
