    Coordinate to enhance third party logistics relationships2007In: The International Journal of Integrated Supply Management, ISSN 1477-5360, E-ISSN 1741-8097, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 69-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article emphasise the importance of coordination in Third Party Logistics (TPL) and describes how coordination can be managed. This is inspired by Key Account Management (KAM) literature and supported by empirical evidence. Buyers of TPL services currently perceive KAM as focusing on making sales and on negotiating contracts. This article proposes that KAM may have a material impact on TPL relationships and that this function can be developed further, primarily by having a coordination role. The article contains a coordination model based on both internal and external coordination of activities within a dyad, divided into operational, functional, geographic, and development coordination. The model explains how these types of coordination can integrate functions and contents in different alliance phases to build successful TPL relationships.

    A change in supply chain information for Swedish process industries and its consequence on a changed development focus2006In: The International Journal of Integrated Supply Management, ISSN 1477-5360, E-ISSN 1741-8097, Vol. 2, no 1-2, p. 149-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How can process industries cope when there is a need for information change in product development? This paper focuses on examining if a changed development focus in process industry can be supported by an integration of supply chain information in product development. This is achieved by focusing on two theoretical perspectives, namely, technology management and supply chain management. The research is based on case studies and a survey addressing companies in various process industries. The paper reveals that an analysis of the information that flows in the entire supply chain can help managers obtain a better understanding of what new competences and knowledge are required in product development. The need for this new type of information can be further formalised by building networks that act like a support to product development. This can be one integration sector between the two theoretical perspectives: technology management and supply chain management.

    Corporate Manufacturing Network – From Hierarchy To Self-Organizing System2006In: The International Journal of Integrated Supply Management, ISSN 1477-5360, E-ISSN 1741-8097, Vol. 2, no 1/2, p. 106-131Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is important for small and medium-sized corporations to collaborate in networks in order to develop capacity, capability, and competence to perform product development and become suppliers of complete systems. The purpose of this case study is to identify barriers and to develop an analytical framework of inter-organizational collaboration in network settings. In this paper we present a tentative four-dimensional framework in terms of surface of integration, scope of integration, time horizon of integration, and intensity of integration. This framework can be used to analyze how network settings are developed, in terms of structural design of the network, the design of the workflow in collaborative settings, and the aspects of handling the psychological and social boundaries between people.

    Corporate Manufacturing Network: From Hierarchy to Self-Organizing System2006In: The International Journal of Integrated Supply Management, ISSN 1477-5360, E-ISSN 1741-8097, Vol. 2, no 1/2, p. 106-131Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to handle increased competition small and medium sized companies are collaborating in networks, strategic alliance, or partnership etc. The purpose of this paper is to investigate how direction and accountability is handled in network settings. The authors have performed an extensive case study of one collocated network consisting of four independent companies. This networking has enabled the companies to accept larger customer orders than no single company could handle on their own. It has also made them capable of reaching a high level of adaptation to customer demands regarding development, manufacturing, delivery, and support of the complete product. The high level of inter-company integration has created conditions for the network to develop self-organizing characteristics in terms of autopoietic and sympoietic systems. While the first focuses on the relations between companies within the network, the second focuses on relations between the network and the environment. This self-organizing approach is based on strategic conversation between companies at all organizational levels and participation of managers as well as engineers in the design of inter-and intra-organizational structures and processes. In self-organizing systems direction comes from closeness to customers and strategic dialogue between management and engineers and accountability is a consequence of high level of situational visibility and information exchange on all hierarchical levels among companies in this network.

    Exploring the dynamics of global sourcing development over time: the case of IKEA2011In: The International Journal of Integrated Supply Management, ISSN 1477-5360, E-ISSN 1741-8097, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 109-126Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research aims at contributing to the literature on global sourcing and particularly to the literature on global sourcing development over time. Using case study materials on the home furnishing retailer IKEA, this research constitutes a picture of the sourcing landscape of IKEA from the 1950s onward. The case of IKEA's global sourcing development over time is discussed over three dimensions: sourcing market development (where?), sourcing scope development (what?), and sourcing mode development (how?). The results of the study imply that modelling the linkages between the dimensions and the overarching operational principles of the firm provides a more comprehensive view on how, and why, global sourcing development evolves over time.

    Business Service Sourcing: A Literature Review and Agenda for Future Research2008In: The International Journal of Integrated Supply Management, ISSN 1477-5360, E-ISSN 1741-8097, Vol. 4, no 3/4, p. 378-405Article, review/survey (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Business service sourcing is increasing in importance for firms; a trend recognised by significant research efforts among scholars. The rapidly expanding literature is, however, highly fragmented. It is difficult to grasp what has actually been investigated, and what remains to be studied. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to review, analyse and categorise empirical research in the area of business service sourcing. A total of 119 empirically-based articles published in peer-reviewed journals were identified and classified according to their focus of research, empirical context, and research methodology. Most articles dealt with the sourcing process or sourcing strategy, less with antecedents to sourcing and sourcing outcomes. Logistics and information systems/information technology services have received the most attention, as have European and North American service buyers. A majority of articles employed statistical methods of analysis.

    Multilevel self-organisation of cyber-physical networks: synergic approach2013In: The International Journal of Integrated Supply Management, ISSN 1477-5360, E-ISSN 1741-8097, Vol. 8, no 1/2/3, p. 90-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cyber-physical networks open new possibilities to supply chain configuration. They are based on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), which tightly integrate physical systems and cyber (IT) systems based on interaction between these systems in real time. Operation and configuration of CPS require approaches for managing the variability at design time and the dynamics at runtime caused by a multitude of component types and changing application environments. The proposed approach benefits from integration of such technologies as multilevel self-organisation and knowledge fusion. Self-organisation within cyber-physical networks opens the avenue towards providing new services at runtime, which need to be accommodated in the business models. Adaptable business models are a promising approach to this challenge.
