How engineers can help build smarter, more resilient supply chains


Australia experienced its first taste of supply chain disruption when the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020, with supermarkets unable to keep up with the huge spike in demand for products like toilet paper and dried pasta. There were also shortages of medical equipment and supplies, which caused some local manufacturers to pivot to produce essential goods, and the ongoing global semiconductor shortage.
