Drivers of supply chain collaboration among Finnish manufacturers
Yigitbasioglu, Ogan & Wisner , Joel D. (2005) Drivers of supply chain collaboration among Finnish manufacturers. The IUP Journal of Supply Chain Management, 2(4), pp. 44-60.
This paper focuses on data exchange relationships and ways to improve collaboration in the supply chain. Initially, the paper examines the information needs and alternatives in supply chain management. In the second part, the paper identifies different sets of factors that are likely to influence information sharing with suppliers, from the manufacturers’ point of view. Results from a Finnish Manufacturing industry survey show that manufacturers provided substantial information on demand data, production schedules, and inventories to their suppliers. Respondents perceived delivery performance measured by the timeliness, accuracy, and defect rate of deliveries as the primary incentives for supplier collaboration. On the other hand, supplier image and the market in which the supplier operates were found to be less relevant in determining the intensity of collaboration.
