    Enhancing Supply Chain Capabilities in an ETO Context Through "Lean and Learn"2021Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 14, nr 3, s. 360-367Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the operations management literature, organizational learning has recently begun to emerge as an important missing link to successful lean transformations. As such, drawing on insights from two case companies in the engineer to order (ETO) industry, we frame the successful enhancement of supply chain capabilities through a lens we call “Lean and Learn”. Continuous improvement without learning is not lean thinking. Thus, lean thinking and practice is, in essence, a process of learning; where problems are identified and solutions are created, analysed, selected, and implemented; resulting not only in improved performance but also in improved capability. Since the ETO industry exhibits project-based production, there seems to be natural barriers and resistance to continuous improvement and learning. By building on the notion that an organization with an improved capability is an organization that has learned, this study examines the link between supply chain capabilities and organizational learning in an ETO context by combining analytical conceptual reasoning with meta-data collected from action research at two case companies. The study contributes to practice by pointing out how supply chain capabilities can be enhanced in an ETO context, and to academia by identifying and offering new knowledge to start filling the research gap between three specific research areas: ETO supply chains, organizational learning, and lean management.

    Critical Manufacturing Prerequisites for Successful Reshoring2021Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 14, nr 2, s. 249-260Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Reshoring is an emergent theme in research and practice. It is important for researchers to understand the motivating force and prerequisites for these reshoring activities, and to develop a method that supports sustainable reshoring decisions. The purpose of this study is to shed light on the prerequisites for successful reshoring. The preparation for this study consists of a systematic literature review. The findings presented here, however, are revelatory and emerged during a workshop. The findings were further researched at a total of four companies, which were part of data collection in a larger project. This research identified three scenarios, in which preceding manufacturing step, creation of parallel steps, or exploration of overcapacity are central. The paper also presents a stage-gateprocess for reshoring decisions as well as a typology of reshoring alternatives. This research sheds light on prerequisites and contextual factors that enable companies to reshore. The importance of manufacturing capabilities can be seen in literature, but has not yet, to our knowledge, been given sufficient attention. The main practical implication is related to offshoring. Overly-aggressive offshoring can complicate future reshoring. As such, reshoring needs to be considered during offshoring, specifically what manufacturing capabilities that are kept at the domestic location.

    Sourcing from China: Approaches and Outcomes for Swedish Firms2022Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 15, nr 2, s. 267-279Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The large and persistent trend of firms sourcing from China is in itself well-established with many success stories. However, managing the sourcing is a complex issue confounded both by cultural differences and the length of the supply chain. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the sourcing approaches of Swedish companies in China and the resultant outcomes. This study is based on a set of cases of Swedish manufacturing and retailer firms. The firms represent different industries and sizes of the company but all have substantial experience sourcing from China. The paper finds that the firms have developed good monitoring systems for their sourcing work and are generally satisfied with the outcomes, but also have persistent communication issues. Two archetypes of firms successfully sourcing from China emerge from the research. The study shows the importance of investing long-term in sourcing operations, especially with regard to developing market understanding and supplier relationships. This must however be matched by appropriate supplier monitoring systems. The research addresses a gap where sourcing configurations and their outcomes beyond general assessments of whether they are successful or not are little explored in the literature.

    Sourcing from China: A Literature Review of Motivations, Outcomes, Problems, and Solutions2017Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 10, nr 4, s. 226-239Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Today’s fast changing environment and increasing customers’ demands require that companies focus on efficiency along the entire supply chain. In order to achieve competitiveness, global sourcing is a common strategy. Especially sourcing from China is an accustomed practice and the topic of discussion by various academics and practitioners. Even though this topic is discussed extensively in literature, little focus is put on motivations, outcomes, problems and solutions when sourcing from China.The purpose of this study is to explore and analyze sourcing from China sourcing with regard to motivations, achieved outcomes, experienced problems as well as solutions to the problems. The results showed that it is crucial to recognize the importance of problems that can occur during global sourcing processes. As to achieve the desired outcomes, it is vital that companies address the problems by developing appropriate solutions. Motivations, outcomes, problems and solutions contain essential aspects that have to be considered and worked upon during a global sourcing process.

    Achieving market orientation through cross-functional integration2019Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 12, nr 3, s. 175-185Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to understand how cross-functional integration contributes to the market orientation of a company that strives to increase market responsiveness. A case study in the Brazilian beverages industry was conducted and empirical data was collected through fourteen in-depth interviews from various functions within the company. The findings indicate that cross-functional integration enables the company to achieve market orientation through two main processes: product launch and customer complaints. Cross-functional integration enables a company to disseminate knowledge about organizational dynamics at both departmental and individual levels, to generate interdependency, to improve the awareness about the internal needs, and to improve the internal knowledge about the customer. This study shows that practitioners need to establish cross-functional integration, as it contributes to the market orientation of a company. Internal knowledge enables practitioners to create value through products and services, while still preserving the corporate image. It also shows that cross-functional teams and meetings are necessary to achieve market orientation in a company.

    Feasibility of nearshoring European manufacturing located in China to Russia2017Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 10, nr 3, s. 141-148Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to identify and analyze factors that support nearshoring of offshored European manufacturing located in China to Russia. The attention is paid to factors, such as labor cost, inflation, exchange rate, and labor productivity that are analyzed based on deterministic models to identify logical dependencies. This study shows that wage growth might deprive manufacturing in China from its main competitive advantage of cheap labor in the forthcoming years. The growing wage rates naturally contribute to the prime cost that is aggravated by the potential inflation, which, in turn, limit the margin in the selling price. The cumulative effect of other extra costs can aggregate such an amount that, in the foreseeable future, companies would need to relocate manufacturing to new locations. One option could be to nearshore manufacturing to Russia.

    Application of the just-in-time approach to a third-generation port2020Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 13, nr 3, s. 279-293Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the feasibility of different logistics concepts applicable in a third-generation port (first-and-foremost, just-in-time approach for a given case). In this regard, a simulation model imitating the work of a real third-generation port was developed. Four experiments with proposed logistics solutions have been configured and evaluated in the simulation model. They differed by the size and number of shipping consignments to the port, deployed truck fleet, etc. The research shows that effective material transfers from the plant to the port can be provided, if a ‘pulling’ type of logistics system is applied instead of the traditional ‘pushing’ system. This alternative allows goods to be delivered just-in-time with the minimum labour costs and material resources.

    Local and Organic Food Distribution Systems: Towards a Future Agenda2020Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 13, nr 4, s. 336-348Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been an increasing consumer demand for local and organic food as they are considered to be more sustainable, ecological, and healthier. The 'conventional' long food distribution system is not sufficient to fulfill the current needs. Consequently, short distribution systems for local and organic food have been gaining popularity, which is not only sustainable but also contributes to food security and satisfies local consumer demand. One such short distribution systems are Alternative Food Networks (AFNs). The AFNs have emerged as a promising provisioning system for local and organic food that promotes economical, environmental, and social sustainability and respect for farming tradition. However, the AFNs are facing challenges in increasing the distribution of local and organic food in the long term. The purpose of the paper is to make a review of the existing short food distribution systems for local and organic food and also to propose a research agenda. In order to achieve this, a literature review is conducted and different food distribution channels within AFNs are studied. The challenges for each food distribution channel are identified and then compared to 'conventional' distribution systems. The main finding of the study is a framework of the main challenges of short food distribution channels within AFNs. The practical implication is generic criteria to consider while designing a short food distribution system that closely connects consumers and farmers of local and organic food. The policy implication is to create favorable conditions to encourage short food distribution systems in the long term.

    Enterprise resource planning system implementation: A user perspective2018Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 11, nr 3, s. 110-117Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate critical success factors (CSFs) for the implementation of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system from a user perspective. Users play a vital role when implementing an ERP system, but their perspective has been neglected in the literature. A better understanding of their perspective promises to contribute to the design of more effective ERP systems, its implementation, and management. In order to identify the user perspective, a survey was conducted within three organizations from Pakistan that have recently implemented an ERP system. The questionnaire was developed based on thirteen CSFs deduced from literature. Based on each CSF’s level of importance, they are ranked in order of importance and divided into three groups: most important, important and not important. Findings reveal that users of the three organizations in Pakistan believe that the implementing organization should prioritize the following four CSFs when implementing an ERP system: education and training, strategic decision-making, communication, and business process alignment.

    Critical Operations Capabilities for Competitive Manufacturing in a High-Cost Environment: A Multiple Case Study2020Inngår i: Operations and Supply Chain Management, ISSN 1979-3561, Vol. 13, nr 1, s. 94-107Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There is increased interest in relocation to and from high-cost environments, but there remains a lack of knowledge with regard to operations capabilities in this specific context. The purpose of this study is thus to investigate critical operations capabilities in a high-cost environment. The research process is based on the investigation of an existing framework of operations capabilities through a multiple case study including five Swedish manufacturing companies. The findings reveal that all the dimensions and capabilities included in the framework were considered critical, and additional operations capabilities could be identified: service quality, supplier dependability, supplier flexibility, supply chain innovation, supply chain sustainability. The investigation underlines the dynamic nature of operations capabilities, which need to be updated constantly according to the environment in which they are developed. This study contributes on a practical level to managers by creating an overview of operations capabilities in a high-cost environment. Through the investigation of critical operations capabilities, it is possible for managers to find new areas of competitiveness, as well as to understand their current areas of excellence. The study makes several contributions, such as the identification of operations capabilities, their investigation and validation in a specific environment.
