Typically, a High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster loosely couples multiple Symmetric Multi- Processor (SMP) platforms into a single processing complex. Each SMP uses shared memory for its processors to communicate, whereas communication across SMPs goes through Supply chains bring companies economies of scale; at the same time, they also carry some risks. Recently risk management has become one of the principles of supply chain management. As discussed by other authors, they attribute process management to both
