There are many impacts of COVID-19 that will be felt by Supply Chains in the coming weeks and months.

As advised by McKinsey, in the next 2-4 weeks it is critical for companies to understand the exposure throughout their value chain, take actions to address anticipated shortages and ensure resources requirements to restart.  

Supply chain planning tools like AIMMS SC Navigator can be used to directly address many of these impacts and help businesses recover quickly from losses.
