Evaluates supply chains to prepare for disaster and manages status of supplier damage in case of disaster

Tokyo, March 21, 2013 - Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Research Institute today announced the immediate availability in Japan of SCRKeeper, Japan's first cloud-based supply chain risk management service to assess and manage the business continuity capabilities of suppliers.

Developed together with Fujitsu Systems West Limited, the new system is able to evaluate and analyze a partner's business continuity capabilities in the case of natural disasters and other unexpected situations. It can also instantly download the latest publicly available hazard map() data and provide damage forecasting and assessment for the regions where suppliers are located. As a result, it is possible to predict the business continuity capabilities of suppliers, while also running disaster simulations to determine the impact that disasters would have on a customer's own operations and the amount of time required for recovery.

Furthermore, when a disaster does actually occur, the service is capable of aggregating disaster status reports from suppliers, in addition to providing support that enables customers to quickly select alternative suppliers and adjust production management.

In 2011, major natural disasters, including the Great East Japan Earthquake and floods in Thailand, had a tremendous impact on Japanese manufacturing by putting a stop to production and delivery. In many cases, these problems were not due to direct damage, but rather the damage incurred by parts suppliers. This renewed focus on the vulnerability of suppliers has led many companies to strengthen their efforts to map their supply chains and evaluate risk. The process of individually examining and evaluating each company in a supply chain, however, is very work-intensive. Moreover, the suppliers being examined were obligated to respond to survey requests from multiple companies, which had an adverse impact on efficiency.

Since 2007, Fujitsu and Fujitsu Research Institute have provided consulting services to over 30 customers to jointly evaluate their supply chain business continuity capabilities. Action was taken to develop common risk assessment standards and analytical methods, and build a framework for visualizing the impact that disasters will have on supply chains. This new Fujitsu cloud service offering was developed and based on the system put in place for Toyota Motor Corporation.

Service Features 1. Evaluates and analyzes business continuity capabilities of suppliers

The service enables customers to perform quantitative analyses regarding the resumption of suppliers' operations, the amount of time required for recovery, damage projections, and the status of implemented countermeasures before a disaster occurs. In addition, using massive sets of data that Fujitsu has collected through its past experience, it is possible to perform multifaceted benchmark analyses pertaining to the geographic locations and industries in which suppliers operate, thereby enabling evaluation results to be provided as feedback to suppliers. This feature is helpful within a customer's internal operations, and it can also be employed as a tool to help improve suppliers' business continuity management activities.

2. Uses hazard maps to evaluate geographic risks for suppliers

By using the latest hazard maps with the addresses of suppliers' production facilities and offices, it is possible to visually simulate the expected damage that will occur during a natural disaster. In addition, when an actual disaster occurs, the system will quickly incorporate data announced by the Japan Meteorological Agency, thereby helping to highlight suppliers that are at risk of damage and enabling the data to be viewed or downloaded.

3. Analyzes impact on the customer's own products

Based on an evaluation of suppliers' business continuity capabilities and the results of geographic risk evaluations using hazard maps, the service enables a customer to quantitatively analyze the impact that a disaster will have on its own products. For example, customers can estimate which products will be affected by production stoppages and calculate when production will resume.

4. Provides immediate damage status updates on suppliers (Available May 2013)

When a disaster actually occurs, the system is immediately updated with reports from suppliers about the status of damage and the outlook on restoration of operations. This makes it possible for customers to check on the status of their suppliers in real time. Moreover, it is possible to search, browse and download an overview of supplier damage status, thereby enabling customers to quickly respond to their suppliers or select alternative suppliers.
