Disruption impact refers to both high impact and low impact disruptions.

Items[edit | edit source]

  • Overall efficiency of operations. (0.54)
  • Lead time for delivery (delivery reliability). (0.80)
  • Purchasing costs for supplies. (0.79)

Comments[edit | edit source]

The three items might measure the construct in a formative rather than reflective way. This might also be the reason for the very low standardized factor loading of the first item.
