The 5-day workshop (28 Nov – 2 Dec) – to be held in Cambridge – is intended to gather people involved in disaster preparedness, mitigation and relief with expertise in aspects of supply chain operations and resilience. The workshop will be part presentation, part discussion and the aims of the workshop are to

(i) Identify factors which drive the need for a resilience perspective on DROPS

(ii) Capture key aspects of DROPS requiring some degree of resilience through spatial analyses (mapping)

(iii) Determine barriers to effective resilience

(iv) Capture case examples of effective/ineffective resilience in disasters

The workshop activities will result in a DROPS White Paper by March 2017. As a workshop participant, you will be requested to provide feedback on the draft document. You will receive a copy of the White Paper and your contribution will be acknowledged.

Topics covered will include:

- Spatial analyses / mapping of supply chain operations in the face of disasters (Mon, Wed)

- Criteria for DROPS (Mon-Fri)

- Frameworks / approaches to resilience in disasters (Tue, Wed)

- Role of big data/analytics in enabling DROPS (Wed, Thu)

- Future directions for DROPS (Wed, Fri) – Case studies (Mon-Fri)

This talk is part of the Disaster Resilient Supply Chain Operations (DROPS) Workshop Series series.
