As part of the division of labor and globalization, enterprises, customers and suppliers are located in various countries and regions. Complex, globalized supply chain network have greatly increased total supply chain risks. Therefore, improving the management of risk associated with the supply chain has become important to many enterprises. Previous, supply chain risk management research has focused mainly on single-stage risk factors and assumed all risk factors to be mutually as independent. Supply chain risk management from the perspective of the whole supply chain network has not been so well researched. Therefore, the present research will consider whole supply chain risk factors and apply the Fuzzy FMEA method to extract the most important them. Finally, the Fuzzy DEMATEL method will be used to identify the causal relationship among these important risk factors. The results in this research will enable enterprises to determine in timely manner the effects of various risk events, enabling them to develop strategies to reduce their effect on the all members of the supply chain.
