Speech Title: Risk Management of Antifragile for E-Business
The internet represents a growing and huge market and the development of e-commerce is an efficient business model which enables new relationship between consumers and suppliers. In order to send goods or products to customer fast and safely, strong support from efficient logistics system is necessary. The logistics process is complicated and has a lot of risks. Risk management is regarded as the important issue in supply chain management, and the antifragile is the new concept of risk analysis. If managers understand the most antifragile parts in all business, they could take actions and know how to allocate resources to avoid risks happening. The objective of this study is to develop an evaluation model and discuss the risk of logistic delivery system via the Fuzzy Cognitive Map and Sensitivity Model. From the survey, we can establish an evaluation model to analyze and describe the antifragile, vulnerability and resilience of the delivery system using different kind of research methods. The results obtained in this study can be used to help the manager formulate strategies and reduce the risks proactively as well.
