Abstract

This paper explores the supply chain (SC) disruption impacts to the performance outcomes of a semiconductor company during the Covid-19 pandemic and proposes appropriate risk mitigation strategies to overcome the crisis. The research uses a single case study methodology and 24 SC employees from Belgium and Germany who take part in the survey. To measure the effect of SC disruptions to the firm’s financial performance, some quarterly financial statement data are used from 2018 to 2021. The regression analysis results show that there is no significant impact of SC disruptions to the firm’s productivity and non-financial performance. The paired samples t-test suggests that there is no significant change in the firm’s financial performance before and during Covid-19 either due to the market’s political and economic stability or the semiconductor company develops effective SC risk management strategies.
