Resilience Maturity Assessment in Manufacturing Supply Chains


Industry 5.0 is a new vision for European industry with focus on human centricity, sustainability, and resilience. Due to that most research on Industry 5.0 concentrates on digital technologies, mainly because its relation to Industry 4.0, there is still limited and one-sided understanding of the concept. To enhance the competitiveness of manufacturing industries in Europe, companies need to develop their capabilities not only in digitalization, but also of human centricity, sustainability and resilience. Resilience, the capacity to withstand or to recover quickly from difficulties, is an important aspect due to war, pandemic, energy crisis and climate change crisis. Many manufacturing companies face major challenges in their supply chains, with limited availability of components, lack of critical virgin materials, high-cost growth, and high supply risk exposure. This research seeks to bring further understanding of the resilience dimension of the Industry 5.0 concept. It adds to the limited amount of research available on Industry 5.0. Also, manufacturing companies need to better understand how they can strengthen their resilience in the supply chains. This paper presents a tool that companies may use to evaluate their maturity, and identify improvement areas. The tool is assessed in three companies.
