are struggling in a highly competitive environment to accelerate their
operations and operations. Discussions such as globalization and the expansion
of networks such as the Internet are important issues that affect the resources,
marketing, and other issues that companies engage with. The effects of
information technology in industries, in the supply chain areas and in the
value chain, are evident from the relationship with suppliers to production and
communication with customers, including the impact of information technology on
the supply chain performance. The purpose of this study was to investigate the
relationship between information technology variables, integration and flexibility
function in the automotive supply chain and the effect that information
technology has on the supply chain performance. After collecting the data
through a questionnaire from automobile manufacturers and analysis of the obtained
model, the results show that the information technology which in this research
includes the Internet, the organization’s network systems and combine system
has a positive and direct effect on integration and flexibility. These results
indicate that the use of information technology increases the integrity and
flexibility of supply chain components and improves communication between them.
