    Supplier selection or collaboration?: Determining factors of performance improvement when outsourcing manufacturing.2009In: Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management, ISSN 1478-4092, E-ISSN 1873-6505, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 143-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An empirical study was designed to determine factors of performance improvement when outsourcing manufacturing. Findings from a survey of 136 manufacturing plants in Sweden show that most of them achieve their outsourcing motives, but not without trade-offs. Factors of performance improvements such as economies of scale or operations in low-cost countries can improve one performance dimension, such as product cost, yet negatively impact volume flexibility, speed or product innovation. The results show part characteristics and supplier operating capabilities are more important than supplier relationship strategies when outsourcing manufacturing, meaning that supplier selection trumps supplier collaboration in the make-or-buy decision.

    Supplier perspective on business relationships: Experiences from six small suppliers2004In: Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management, ISSN 1478-4092, E-ISSN 1873-6505, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 137-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, the suppliers’ contributions to their customers’ processes are analysed from the perspective of the supplier, and the conditions for mutual learning are discussed. The study is based on case studies of six suppliers connected to three lift truck companies. The case studies reveal that collaboration is not fully developed, and the reasons for this are analysed. The barriers to mutual learning seem to relate to the customers’ demands for price reductions, the customers’ lack of interest in co-operating, unequal relations between customer and supplier, and constraints regarding co-operation with the customers’ competitors.
