RISK EXPOSURE INDEX™ (REI)
RISK EXPOSURE INDEX (REI) TRANSFORMS THE WAY COMPANIES PRIORITIZE RISK
REI is a method developed by MIT professor David Simchi-Levi to manage unpredictable supply chain disruptions. This method helps prioritize the financial impact of risk through the Risk Exposure Index (REI), enabling companies to focus mitigation efforts on the most important suppliers and risk areas.
The method was implemented successfully at Ford Motor Company as detailed in Harvard Business Review, From Superstorms to Factory Fires: Managing Unpredictable Supply-Chain Disruptions.
