A Model For The Understanding Of Supply Chain Networks
Carlos Brito and
Place of Publication
The paper was published at the 19th IMP-conference in Lugano, Switzerland in 2003.
This paper aims to develop a framework for the understanding of why and how supplier management influences the buying company's strategy and performance. These are highly dependent on suppliers? actions and on the way the relationships with them are managed by the buying company. Authors have developed extensive and valuable research on the impact of supplier relationships in a network context. However, important issues regarding supply management and its effects on the performance and strategy of the buying firm seem not to be fully investigated. In this context, this paper encompasses a model of supply chain networks developed on the basis of the conceptual framework of the IMP group.
