Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events. In the last decade risk management has become a vital part of supply chain management. The risk sources of supply chain are identified in five areas namely: transport/distribution, manufacturing, order cycle, warehousing, and procurement. The aim of the study is to build a supply chain risk measurement system using Fuzzy Inference Systems (FIS).
