Business Continuity Planning in Manufacturing: Preparing for the Worst-Case Scenario
Modern manufacturing operations are running leaner than ever before. While this is great
for cash flow and the bottom line, it can make responding to a business disruption next to
impossible. Learn what really affects the manufacturing industry and how to prepare.
Critical Challenges for Manufacturers
American manufacturers today must fully employ the engineering, processing, and
logistical capacities of their entire supply chains. America's drive toward customer
responsiveness and business process and supply chain optimization must be as relentless as our
foreign competitors'. Developing strategies for responding to supply chain disruptions is
particularly important because sustainable competitive advantage is typically driven by increased
responsiveness and cost minimization. Even though we realize the inverse relationship between
risk and efficiency, supply chain planning must also consider customer satisfaction. From a
strategic viewpoint, we have a triangle of competing objectives:
world class customer service
Market Realities Meet Legal Implications
Manufacturing organizations depend on the continual flow of product to meet customer
expectations, financial obligations, and business objectives--and even to achieve regulatory
compliance. Manufacturers can possibly face stiff penalties or cancellation of orders if they fail
to ship on time, and in the correct quantities. Unplanned business interruptions from disasters or
crisis events can, over time, result in serious financial liquidity problems, increased operating
costs, loss of stock value, and erosion of market share.

A Guide to Business Continuity Planning
This publication provides a summary and general guidelines for business continuity
planning (BCP). While governments, not-for-profit institutions, and non-governmental
organizations also deliver critical services, private organizations must continuously deliver
products and services to satisfy shareholders and to survive. Although they differ in goals and
functions, BCP can be applied by all organizations.
Changes in the world of business continuity planning
A Business Resumption Plan describes how to resume business after a disruption. A
Disaster Recovery Plan deals with recovering Information Technology (IT) assets after a
disastrous interruption. Both imply a stoppage in critical operations and are reactive.
Recognizing that some services or products must be continuously delivered without interruption,
there has been a shift from Business Resumption Planning to Business Continuity Planning. A
business continuity plan enables critical services or products to be continually delivered to
clients. Instead of focusing on resuming a business after critical operations have ceased, or
recovering after a disaster, a business continuity plan endeavors to ensure that critical operations
continue to be available.
What is business continuity planning?
Critical services or products are those that must be delivered to ensure survival, avoid
causing injury, and meet legal or other obligations of an organization. Business Continuity
Planning is a proactive planning process that ensures critical services or products are delivered
during a disruption.
A Business Continuity Plan includes:
Plans, measures and arrangements to ensure the continuous delivery of critical services
and products, which permits the organization to recover its facility, data and assets.
Identification of necessary resources to support business continuity, including personnel,
information, equipment, financial allocations, legal counsel, infrastructure protection and
