Assess the impact of business interruptions (BIA) and deploy BCPs

Our customer, a major international group in the Aerospace and Defense sector, has suffered numerous crises linked to business interruptions at its own sites and those of its suppliers, and would like to have a continuity plan for its programs, integrating its entire Supply Chain network.

Initially, business continuity plans were specific to each site and existed in a variety of formats, were not interconnected, and did not include suppliers. These programs mobilized resources at each site, and involved numerous suppliers. An interruption could lead to delays and very substantial penalties.


Main achievements


Construction of a Business Impact Analysis model and a Supply Chain BCP model


We began by mapping the flow of components and the use of resources (equipment, testing and assembly resources) on the most critical programs.

We had to build a specific model to identify critical resources by simulating the impact of supply interruption scenarios for all or part of industrial sites.

We then listed back-up solutions and evaluated implementation times, so as to integrate them into a continuity database containing useful documents and contacts in the event of a crisis.

This enabled the sites’ BCPs to be updated according to a common BIA, a global mapping of resources and a unified format.


Key figures :

150 critical resources qualified

300+ critical suppliers mapped

1 single BIA covering all 10 major programs
