SCRIPS: Supply Chain Resilience Issues, Problems and Solutions for the Homeland Security Enterprise

A collage featuring four different photographs divided by a central banner with the acronym “SCRIPS Workshop” in large black letters with ASU gold shadow. A background photo in the upper part of the image is a blue background with a metal link chain in the middle. Below the acronym, in smaller ASU gold-color text, reads “Supply Chain Resilience Issues, Problems and Solutions for the Homeland Security Enterprise.” The bottom left photo shows a close-up of a bright blue sky with fluffy clouds and displays an orange cargo crane at a shipping port with containers. The bottom middle photo is an intricate close-up of blue circuit board components. In the bottom right is an image of agricultural machinery in a field under a clear sky. Each photograph represents different aspects of supply chain resilience issues and solutions relevant to homeland security.
