Abstract

Interest in resilience is on the rise. In Operations Management, much attention has focused on supply chain resilience, to the exclusion of in-company resilience. Implicit in this is an assumption that resilience mainly concerns resistance to, and recovery from, major disruptions. We challenge this assumption in two ways. First, we argue that resilience is relevant to operations within as well as between organizations. Second, we use a simulation of a manufacturing process to demonstrate empirically that resilience is associated with other aspects of manufacturing performance such as productivity, quality and agility.
