Covid-19 has stuck at the core of the global value chain hub regions and has disrupted supply chains around the world with a series of problems: reduced demands, higher uncertainty, longer transfer cycle time, facility relocation, shortage in labor and critical materials... These challenges certainly urge a more robust, more flexible and more effective supply chain network management (SCNM) system. In this talk, we present several ad-hoc smart SCNM solutions for some Asian companies in mitigation of the pandemic. These data-driven smart solutions integrate multiple tools in machine learning, robust optimization, and operations management and perform well in the face of the challenges of Covid-19.
