Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of how IT is utilised in supplier portfolio management (SPM) in the automotive industry and how SPM is influenced by IT. This study explains and describes how the management of suppliers that deliver parts that go directly in to the final product in the automotive industry can be characterised and how IT is used to support it. Furthermore, the influence of information technologies on the management of these suppliers in the automotive industry is investigated. Therefore, two case studies with two leading European car manufacturers were conducted. The main conclusion this study shows it that information technologies are in this context mainly used to support supplier management by automating processes and to make good communication and effective supply chain management possible.
