Abstract [en]

Purchasing and supply management research influences practice through the advancement of knowledge and theoretical principles and is positioned as an academic discipline. For the individual researcher, it calls for skills and experience that can be associated with engaged scholarship. This paper explores tensions inherent in engaged scholarship, that arise during the quest to interact closely with professionals to ensure relevance and impact while living up to research quality criteria. The paper concludes that the individual researcher in a field such as PSM is easily left with guidelines that point in multiple directions regarding personal achievement and institutional merits.

Abstract [en]

This paper complements current literature on qualitative methods and collaborative research approaches by addressing workshops as a unique way of not only collecting data, but also allow for joint analysis and conceptualizations. We have applied a grounded, data-driven approach based on retrospective analysis of the content of 40 workshops in four different collaborative research projects. This paper contributes to a better understanding for workshops and their role in data collection, data analysis and conceptualization as well as other non-research-process related activities in collaborative research projects.

Abstract [en]

For customizations where individual customers are involved as early as in design stages, referred to as engineer-to-order (ETO), the ability to effectively share knowledge across organizational boundaries is a necessity. This concerns knowledge shared both in the customer interface and the supplier interface. Different situations may however require different processes for knowledge to be effectively shared. This research proposes a framework for analysing knowledge sharing complexity in ETO scenarios from a triadic perspective. Combined with empirical illustrations, the analytical framework supports in describing scenarios and their implications for effective knowledge sharing.

Abstract [en]

The purpose is to explore the potential of increased supply chain performance by improved information sharing between suppliers and contractors in the construction project. Four suppliers are studied, representing different combinations of supplying materials with few or continuous deliveries during the project. The study shows that, in order to improve performance, suppliers need different information sharing practices depending on if they continuously present at site or have few deliveries. Based on this and information sharing literature, we have developed a framework of information sharing practice differentiating what suppliers need, including how and when to exchange it.

Abstract [en]

In recent years, many manufacturers have experienced an increased demand for customized products and services, which requires the manufacturer to simultaneously offer both standardized and customized products. Consequently, several manufacturing strategies must be efficiently employed. These companies do not express the same prerequisites as ‘pure’ ETO companies since they need to be able to differentiate customized orders from standard orders, but also be able to differentiate between the manufacturing dimension and the engineering dimension of customization. Whereas standard orders can be processed with a platform approach, the customized orders contain specific requirements and information represented by ‘customer-order specific information’ (COSI). This paper defines and presents competitive scenarios where platform constraints are combined with COSI for efficient customizations. Implications for the approach and a path forward is discussed.

Abstract [en]

Lately, collaborative research has gained recognition. The balance between scientific rigour and practical relevance is a continuing issue within construction management research. The purpose of this paper it to describe a cross-industry and cross disciplinary approach to co-creation of knowledge through a collaborative research approach. A collaborative research project on the topic communication regarding customer specific demands is presented using a model with two interacting cycles for knowledge creation. Two construction companies, a housing company with off-site manufacturing and a small subcontractor manufacturing street doors and front doors, are participating. Four other companies within mechanical manufacture, telecom and consultancy are involved. To engage the companies, the project emphasizes activities not adding any contribution to academic production. Networking, industrial education, publications in trade journals, participation in trade fairs etc. might be essential to convince the industry of the practical relevance. The findings prove that applied research does not need to be isolated to specific industries or disciplines, as the collected data are applicable to the different participating companies' despite of their differences.
