LITERATURE REVIEW The research of Disaster Relief Supply Chain Management (DRSCM) is expanding quickly. However, factors affecting its outcome have little been written, especially the organizational factors used in managing information, materials, and financial flows. The results of DRSCM are difficult to measure and define. However, performance and theory measurement in the commercial sector, associated with supply chain management, marks the starting point for the theory and performance measurement in a disaster relief supply research (Altay & Green, 2006). Moreover, these disaster relief work in dynamic and turbulent environments. The essential questions in supply chain management remain questionable until after implementing relief operations due to the unknown territory that the systems here operate. The literature here bears the idea that systems must be sighted outside the "business as usual" framework. Thus, making a plan is essential since this plan will be most likely modified. It cannot encompass all these unknowns during the execution of a disaster relief operation. One of the impacts of this research is to issue out a more granular description of the DRSCM. Additionally, even the current description of the DRSCM is broad to fit its dynamic culture effectively. The majority of the DRSCM literature mainly focuses on the preparation and mitigation phase of the response disaster. Therefore, the ability to manage rapidly undergoing environment is dependent on training, experience, as well as its potentiality to improvise the effectiveness. This literature review will examine the emerging field of DRSCM, the traditional supply chain management (SCM), improvisation as a theory, and lastly, the improvisation as applied to the (DRSCM). It will also involve the performance measurements taking it as an evolving idea in both the traditional, as well as the (DRSCM). Literature Structure
As far as literature is concerned, there is a wide body that contributes to the exploration, explanation, as well as the development theory in the field, even though this field of the (DRSCM) remains in the emergent phase. The emergency management literature hand out to the structure of the bodywork, that has been categorized as a disaster management literature that examines disasters as well as our response to them. It explains the dimensions, characteristics as well as categorizing the disaster itself such as the temporal phase of geographical considerations, and the disaster's magnitude, response, and recovery. On the other hand, supply chain management literature describes the process involving the management of a response effort that eases the flow of the information, financial and material resources. However, research of the supply chain management is related closely to operations research, operations management, and logistics. According to Armstrong & Overton (1977), there are many overlapping components although there are differences in the focus and scope of these fields that issue essential insights to emerging or any new research. This literature affirms that there
