Information sharing with first-tier suppliers: A volume-flexibility perspective
2015 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Recent research has empirically validated the contribution of information sharing to supply chain performance. However, the question of how information sharing affects first-tier supplier’s ability to respond to fluctuating volumes remains unexplored. This paper explores how information sharing between Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and first-tier supplier in automotive industry affects the supplier's volume flexibility. Anchored in 16 semi-structured interviews with executives of eight automotive supplier firms in Sweden, the study proposes a conceptual framework to understand how information sharing affects the suppliers' delivery performance.
