Supply Chain Resilience

The Point of View of Quintiq


The butterfly effect
The “butterfly effect” was a term coined by mathematician, meteorologist and chaos theory expert Edward Lorenz around 1960. It refers to how one small incident can have a huge impact later on down the line. The recent West Coast ports cargo-handling disruption is an example of the butterfly effect.
