Abstract

This paper proposes a structural equation model to assess the effects of some risk factors in the supply chainperformance. The model includes demand, suppliers and processes as risk factors of a case study in Ciudad Juarez,Chihuahua, Mexico. The model, assessed following a structural equation modeling methodology (using AMOS 16.0),indicated that the demand (considered as an independent factor) has a direct positive relationship with suppliers,politics, and manufacturing factors. As a consequence the suppliers have an effect on the flexibility factor. Theflexibility has a direct positive relationship with the customer service factor. The results also indicate that theinfrastructure factor does not have any relationship with the others assessed factors. The study has importantimplications for researches and practitioners in the manufacturing sector. It allows evaluating risk activities that havenegative effects on the performance of supply chain in manufacturing exports companies in Mexico.
