Helping Manufacturing SMEs Minimize Risks through Supply Chain Simulation

TEKK Tour Digital Wallonia

In the context of growing globalization, companies are increasingly dependent on their suppliers and subcontractors. The risks resulting from this evolution are currently poorly evaluated and managed.
As part of the project SimQRi, CETIC has developed a supplier risk assessment methodology linked to the procurement process and the production line.

Helping Manufacturing SMEs Minimize Risks through Supply Chain Simulation

TEKK Tour Digital Wallonia

In the context of growing globalization, companies are increasingly dependent on their suppliers and subcontractors. The risks resulting from this evolution are currently poorly evaluated and managed.
As part of the project SimQRi, CETIC has developed a supplier risk assessment methodology linked to the procurement process and the production line.

Christophe Ponsard Head of SSE Department (Software and System Engineering) at CETIC, presented at a workshop of TEKK Tour Digital Wallonia a simulation tool able to calculate the risk related to different adverse scenarios (late deliveries, defective parts, poor quality ...) both in terms of accurate probabilitic distribution and fine-grained impact estimates.

This simulation tool oriented towards"Industrie 4.0" was developed and integrated with an engine called OscaR. The whole tool is made available to companies in Open Source mode: see https://simqri.cetic.be/. Different validation case studies were also presented both with Belgian and German companies also covering Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM).

As part of the KIKK Festival, the TEKK Tour Digital Wallonia is a two days international meeting organized by INFOPOLE, WBI, AWEX, EEN, Cluster TWIST, AdN and MecaTech. The event was dedicated to innovation and business. The focus has been on the big challenges of our society: Industry 4.0, IoT and Cybersecurity.
