The impact of supply chain integration on performance: A contingency and configuration approach
Year: 
2010

An ongoing debate in supply chain management is about the degree to which companies should collaborate with their supply chain partners. In business and research the concept is called supply chain integration and may also be a useful strategy for reducing certain risks. And of course it is an often used strategy in supply chain management in general
Analyzing the effect of supply chain integration on performance therefore is an important issue in SCM research.

Information sharing in a supply chain

Obstacles to Information Sharing

There are many obstacles to information sharing in a supply chain. Confidentiality is probably one of the biggest issues, but there are others not so obvious like antitrust regulations, the timeliness and accuracy of the provided information, differing technologies between the supply chain partners or a mismatch in the alignment of incentives. Therefore trust and cooperation become critical ingredients in a supply chain partnership.

Paper

Design and Operation of a Future Hydrogen Supply Chain
Year: 
2006

Increasing oil prices make it more rewarding to look for alternative energy sources to fuel future propulsion.
In the case of the reviewed paper today I selected one of a few papers I recently discovered on this topic. If you like to know more just let me know.The basic assumption of this paper sets hydrogen as the replacement energy storage for oil.

A combined model of network design and production/distribution planning for a supply network
Year: 
2002

Jang et al. (2002): “A combined model of network design and production/distribution planning for a supply network” suggest a framework for integrating the strategic supply chain network design with the operational planning needed for production and distribution.
They make the point that strategical and operational planning should be integrated to find the optimal solution for the company. The following problems are affected.

Alternate Scenario Planning
Year: 
1977

Scenario Planning has been around for some time now. By some companies it is seen as a core tool to assess a risky future and support strategic planning. Up to now I only mentioned it briefly in a few articles

In 1977 Vanston et al. were one of the first authors to document a complete scenario planning methodology.

Paper

Industrial Dynamics Simulation Models in the Design of Supply Chains
Year: 
1992

I already reviewed some articles by Denis Towill primarily because he does some interesting research on simulation and supply chains, but also because I like his clear style in his articles.

In one of his early papers (1992) he teamed up with Naim and Wikner and described state of the art strategies to fight the bullwhip effect or as it is called in the paper by its older name: Industrial Dynamics.
