  • inter relationship among risk taking propensity Supply Chain security practices and Supply Chain disruption occurrence
    Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management, 2016
    Co-Authors: Ki Hyun Park

    Abstract Supply Chain disruptions often led to declining sales, cost increases, and service failures for the company. Considering the profound impact of Supply Chain disruptions on business survivals, there is a need for formulating business initiatives that will make the company's Supply Chain network more resilient in the presence of risk and uncertainty. This paper sheds light on the inter-relationships among risk propensity, Supply Chain security practices, and disruption occurrence so that it can help the company figure out what it takes to overcome the company's vulnerability to Supply Chain risks and then gain competitive advantages over its rivals by better preparing for potential Supply Chain disruptions. This paper attempts to identify factors affecting the firm's risk behaviors and Supply Chain security practices based on the questionnaire survey of Supply Chain professionals. The finding indicates that firms which take the risk of Supply Chain disruption seriously are more likely to comply with security initiatives and build safety stocks and subsequently reduce the frequency of Supply Chain disruption occurrence.

  • design for Supply Chain collaboration
    Business Process Management Journal, 2008
    Co-Authors: Togar M Simatupang, Ramaswami Sridharan

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to clarify the architecture of Supply Chain collaboration and to propose a design for Supply Chain collaboration (DfC), which enables participating members to create and develop key elements of the proposed architecture.Design/methodology/approach – The paper offers a concept for designing the five elements of the architecture of Supply Chain collaboration, namely collaborative performance system, decision synchronisation, information sharing, incentive alignment, and innovative Supply Chain processes. A case study was carried out to illustrate the applicability of the framework.Findings – DfC was confirmed using a case to evaluate a Supply Chain system in which the Chain members concurrently designed the architecture of Supply Chain collaboration. The findings show that design for collaboration facilitates the Chain members to have a broader view to develop and ensure an effective collaboration.Research limitations/implications – Secondary data were collected to des...

  • uncertainty and Supply Chain risk the moderating role of Supply Chain flexibility in risk mitigation
    International Journal of Production Economics, 2017
    Co-Authors: R Sreedevi, Haritha Saranga

    Abstract In order to remain competitive in the market, firms are forced to expand their product offerings and offer high levels of customization, bringing about high uncertainty in their Supply Chain. Firms that face high environmental uncertainty are increasingly facing higher risks in terms of Supply disruptions, production and delivery delays that ultimately result in poor operational performance. This study aims at understanding the antecedents of Supply Chain operational risk faced by firms and the conditions under which such risks can be mitigated. Using Indian data from the sixth edition of International Manufacturing Strategy Survey (IMSS) and structural equation modeling, we investigate the relationships between environmental uncertainty and Supply Chain risk and the moderating effect of Supply Chain flexibility. We identify appropriate types of flexibility to mitigate the three major aspects of Supply Chain risk: Supply risk, manufacturing process risk and delivery risk. Our empirical investigation reveals that uncertainty in the Supply Chain leads to high Supply Chain risk; and in uncertain environments, Supply and manufacturing flexibility help in reducing the Supply and manufacturing process risks respectively. However, our results also indicate that, in emerging markets such as India where logistic infrastructure is less developed, internal capabilities alone may not be sufficient in reducing Supply Chain delivery risk. Our findings not only contribute towards filling certain gaps in the Supply Chain risk management literature, but also provide practicing managers and researchers a better understanding of the types of flexibility that can mitigate Supply Chain risk in different business environments.

  • Supply Chain analysis Supply Chain analysis spreadsheet or simulation
    Winter Simulation Conference, 2002
    Co-Authors: Leonardo Chwif, Marcos Ribeiro Pereira Barretto, Eduardo Saliby

    In the last few decades, a lot of company effort has been spent in the optimization of internal efficiency, aiming at cost reduction and competitiveness. Especially over the last decade, there has been a consensus that not only the company, but the whole Supply Chain in which it fits, is responsible for the success or failure of any business. Therefore, Supply Chain analysis tools and methodologies have become more and more important. From all tools, spreadsheets are by far the most widely used technique for scenario analysis. Other techniques such as optimization, simulation or both (simulation-optimization) are alternatives for in-depth analysis. While spreadsheet-based analysis is mainly a static-deterministic approach, simulation is a dynamic-stochastic tool. The purpose of this paper is to compare spreadsheet-based and simulation-based tools showing the impacts of using these two different approaches on the analysis of a real (yet simplified) Supply Chain case study.

  • effects of enterprise technology on Supply Chain collaboration analysis of china linked Supply Chain
    Enterprise Information Systems, 2012
    Co-Authors: Ling Li

    Supply Chain collaboration has received increasing attention from scholars and practitioners in recent years. However, our understanding of how enterprise information technology facilitates Supply Chain collaboration is still very limited, especially with regard to Chinese enterprise ownerships such as state-owned firms, joint-venture firms and local village-owned firms. This paper extends the theory established in enterprise information technology (IT) and Supply Chain collaboration literature and relates it with coordination in China-linked Supply Chain. Drawing upon an empirical study from 177 Chinese companies, we provide three major findings: (i) uncovered the importance of leveraging enterprise IT through Supply Chain collaboration; (ii) identified the relationship between enterprise ownership and enterprise technology use and Supply Chain collaboration in China-linked Supply Chain and (iii) illustrated effects of Supply Chain collaborative activities on operational and market performance.
