[en] Variations in quantities, qualities and time availability of input materials pose a major risk to circular supply chains (CSC) and require new models for creating and evaluating adaptive and resilient CSC in the circular economy (CE). This can be achieved by consistently modelling the overarching relationship between resource input- and output streams, without neglecting the associated risks.
The model proposed below consists of five components which are based on five resilience requirements for SCs and provides a data-based recommended course of action for managers at a low entry-barrier. It consists of a CSC visualization, a safety stock calculation, a risk monitoring for each SC node, a reporting logic, and a measurement catalogue. The inspiration for this model came from an innovative case study (“Zirkelmesser”) in the metal processing industry in which secondary products and materials are used to produce new products. Here, the problem of maintaining the resource supply arose and led to resilience issues. The mentioned case study is used as an application example for the model application and helps to make emerging circular supply chains predictable and better manageable, thus increasing their resilience.
