Mechanics of humanitarian supply chain agility and resilience and its empirical validation
April 15, 2014 Editor 0
The purpose of this paper is to establish the relationship between chain agility, supply chain resilience and humanitarian supply chain performance. In this paper, researchers have attempted to explain supply chain agility and supply chain resilience using oscillation physics theory and further attempted to test the theoretical concept empirically using psychometric tool. The researchers have collected data which represent 20% response rate is subjected to exploratory factor analysis (EFA) using principal component analysis (PCA). The EFA output is further tested using ordinary least-square regression to check the fitness of constructs as a CFA test. The confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) test output suggests that factors obtained using EFA represent the constructs of the model. The multivariate analysis shows that supply chain agility, supply chain resilience are two important determinants of the pre-disaster and post-disaster supply chain performance measures.
