Manufacturing networks - global production networks and international manufacturing networks - are exposed to an increase in uncertainty, which can cause disturbances. To cope with these disturbances, scholars presented different concepts, such as robustness, resilience, responsiveness, flexibility, changeability, adaptability, and agility. However, these terms are not clearly and concisely defined and lack a common understanding. With this study, we intend to address this issue and contribute to a better understanding and differentiation. We develop a taxonomy with descriptive dimensions and characteristics for the different resistance concepts for manufacturing networks, which will provide a tool to better understand the differences and commonalities between them. It is a vital first step that creates a common ground for further investigations. Practitioners can use the taxonomy to build a sound understanding and improve their manufacturing network.
