a. Supply versus Demand Reliability: Are you consistently meeting customer demands?

b. Inflation Impact: How exposed is your company to inflation?

c. Logistic Resilience: Can you reliably deliver products on time?

d. Quality Resilience: Do you encounter quality problems with product returns?

e. Inventory Resilience: Is your stock sufficient to meet demands effectively?
