The role of time variability in supply chains — a multiple case study [chapter]

Kari Tanskanen, Ari-Pekka Hameri
1998 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
In this paper we present an approach for identifying problems in the managerial principles of supply chains. The approach is especially designed for analysing export deliveries in process industry.  ...  The key idea of the approach is to divide the logistic chain into major steps, measure the time variability at each step and to focus on the slow moving deliveries.  ...  This information was used to identify problems in the supply chain and to plan improvements.  ...

The effect of problems on supply chain wide efficiency

Micheline J. Naude, Johanna A. Badenhorst-Weiss
2011 Journal of Transport and Supply Chain Management  
If the supply chain is seen as a system of organisations with one aim (value for the final customer), it is logical that a problem in one part of the supply chain must affect the workings and efficiency  ...  The study found that problems experienced at one place in the supply chain had a negative impact throughout the supply chain.  ...  The problem with on-time delivery can cause a ripple effect through the supply chain and strain the relationship and 'trust between ACMs and OEMs'.  ...
