Supply chain redesign: READI could be a key enabler of redesigning supply chains in response to disruptions as noted in the literature (Blackhurst et al.
READI could be used as a basis to determine the optimal use of various mitigation and contingency techniques relative to various disruption characteristics (Tomlin 2006).
Risk assessment: READI could help alleviate much of the subjective nature of risk assessment and, therefore, improve its effectiveness (Zsidisin et al.
These are just a few examples of where and how READI could be utilized in future research endeavors.
We believe READI could be a powerful method to assess and build supply chain resilience.
We demonstrated READI on the supply chain of a major consumer pro ducts company.
Course instructors were asked to administer the READI assessment to the students within the first 2 weeks of the semester.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether the READI assessment tool could predict student success in an online communication course through comparing students' scores on the READI assessment to their final GPA.
Table 1 illustrates the descriptive statistics for the 194 students who completed the READI assessment.
A Kruskal-Wallis test was used to look for significant differences between each of the READI assessment categories and final grades earned in the online basic communication classes.
The results in Table 3 indicated that no significant differences exist in READI assessment scores and final grades.
