The Impact Analyzer provides support in assessing the impact of a risk event and creates transparency about criticality and dependencies in the supply chain. To this end, central questions (e.g. relating to replacement period, degree of substitutability, availability of alternative suppliers) are defined, and the impact on sales, margins or EBIT, measured. Impact assessment is a prerequisite for appropriate preventive and reactive measures, and the basis for developing a risk management and portfolio strategy.
Combining risk information (via the Risk Radar) and criticality data derived from determining the impact (via the Impact Analyzer) enables urgent needs for action to be identified so that risks can be addressed in a proactive manner using appropriate measures (via the Action Planner), thereby ensuring the success of the company.
