Resilient Value Creation

© Fraunhofer IPA/Rainer Bez
In value creation systems, five elements are critical: infrastructure, organization, processes, manufacturing system and value chain

Crises occur in different forms (e.g. sanctions, natural disasters, financial or industry crises, pandemics) but with a certain regularity. From a value creation perspective, these “shocks” have a negative impact on supply and demand. To avoid losses, companies need to be resilient. Crisis strategies therefore need to be developed before a crisis actually occurs. With the lead and future topic of resilient value creation, Fraunhofer IPA points out the different courses of action open to value-adding companies.

For this, we define resilient value creation as follows:

"Resilience describes the ability of a system to withstand external influences. A resilient value creation system pursues the sustainment of value-creating and economic operability."
