Abstract: We present a broad range of models for designing supply chains that are resilient to disruptions. We categorize these models by the status of the existing network (a network may be designed from scratch, or an existing network may be modified to prevent disruptions at some facilities), then by the underlying optimization model (facility location or network design), and finally by the risk measure (expected cost or worst-case cost). We conclude with suggested directions for future research.
