ACHIEVING SUPPLY CHAIN COMPETITIVENESS: SOME CRITICAL ISSUES
Ajay Verma,,Dr. Nitin Seth
International Journal of Engineering Science and Technology , 2010,
Abstract: In today’s global marketplace, competitive priorities have forced organizations to change dramatically due to rising customer expectations, continually increasing competition on a world-wide scale, time and quality based competition and mass customization. The fierce competition in today’s market is led by advances in industrialtechnology, increased globalization, and tremendous improvement in information availability. With the development of information technology and economic globalization, modern competition has already become the competition among enterprises and their supply chains rather than the competition among enterprises only. In this era, the organizations are forced to rethink their operations, alliances, partnerships and strategies to cope with these and similar changes. Supply chain competitiveness has been emerged as one of the strongest tool for gaining competitive advantages. A company is competitive when it is able to create and deliver value for its customers. A supply chain is competitive if it is able to create and deliver value for its customers and its components. In the growing economy of India, supply chain competitiveness (SCC) is a real solution to theproblems faced by organizations in this global environment. This paper identifies some of the supply chain competitiveness issues and presents roles of suppliers, manufacturers and distributors. Some future perspectives are then presented. The paper aims at identifying some critical issues related to supply chain competitiveness and presents roles of the major components of supply chain.

Mendes Primo,Marcos André; DuBois,Frank;
Journal of technology management & innovation , 2012, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-27242012000200004
Abstract: technological capabilities (tc) play a key role in the competitiveness of firms in industrial sectors. suppliers in emerging economies often acquire technological capabilities by operating and mastering technologies developed by others and then leveraging this learning to develop indigenous technologies. by reviewing research on firm specific technological capabilities, the development of global value chains and industrial clusters in emerging markets we discuss local suppliers’ insertion and upgrading in the supply chains of new large industrial enterprises. using the brazilian shipbuilding industry as context, we investigate and develop propositions related to the ability of local suppliers to develop technological capabilities that permit eventual insertion into the local supply chain. this research has applications for managers and policy makers from other emerging market countries seeking to increase local sourcing through development of local suppliers.
Supply chain management and logistics strategy: case studies in automotive suppliers.
Jonas Lucio Maia,Aline Lamon Cerra
Sistemas & Gest?o , 2006,
Abstract: Automotive industry is, traditionally, a fruitful field for the developments in Operations Engineering/Management. In Brazil, such industry has suffered the impacts of structural changes like the adoption of lean manufacturing, the set up of new productive chains, changes in product design, among others.Considering the possible impacts of all these changes, this work aims at analyzing and comparing the Logistics and Supply Chain Management characteristics of two automotive suppliers.The case analysis suggests that, in both studied suppliers, logistics strategic goals (service level) are similar, but the companies need to undertake distinct logistic activities, according to the chains to which they belong. Specifically, the strategic and structural issues seem to condition the logistics of each supplier, creating a framework in which the suppliers need to manage their logistic activities to achieve the desired strategic goals.
DECISION MAKING IN SUPPLY CHAINS AND VALUE NETWORKS: THE BEER GAME EVOLUTION  [PDF]
Paolo Spagnoletti,Edoardo D’Atri,Alessandro D’Atri
International Journal of Electronic Commerce Studies , 2013, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.7903/ijecs.1113
Abstract: New trends in inter-organization configurations are challenging the traditional concept of supply chain. Concepts such as Virtual Enterprise were introduced to describe scenarios in which manufacturers operate as nodes within a network of suppliers, customers, engineers, and other specialized service functions. Our aim is to build a simulation tool based on the rules of the Beer Game that includes the variables of a virtual enterprise, VirtuE in particular, and risk management in order to understand the strategies underlying the subject’s behavior in the face of risk within a means-end chain. The simulation tool will contribute to understanding the complexity of managing decision making in supply chains and networks. This study presents the tests carried out on the original game, the new variables introduced, and the simulation results.
Introducing Game Development into the University Curriculum
Bojan Klemenc,Peter Peer*
Acta Graphica : Journal for Printing Science and Graphic Communications , 2012,
Abstract: Integrating computer games development into computer science curriculum is gaining acceptance. However, the question is how this should be done. In our course on computer game development we present all necessary steps that a game project has to address, from design to publication and marketing, from the theoretical to the practical point of view. The goal is that each student makes a casual game for Apple iOS platform and possibly publishes it. The games are built on our xni framework for iOS, which is a subset of Microsoft’s xna. We take an iterative incremental approach to teaching game development, where we discuss a number of selected topics from various categories, such as gameplay design, graphics and artificial intelligence, each week. Thereafter the students receive mandatory and non-mandatory assignments that force them to add functionality to their game and, thus, steadily progress towards their goal. At the end of the course more than 20 % of all projects were ready for the Apple App Store, which, together with student pools saying that the course was one of the best executed courses they attended, confirms the viability of the suggested scheme.

LogForum , 2011,
Abstract: To increase the efficiency of the business in times of the globalization and increasing competition, the management of the companies looks for opportunities to achieve higher incomes or to reduce the costs of inputs. One of possible methods to obtain higher efficiency is to put the emphasize on the relationships with suppliers. This is very important element of an effective management of the company, because by determining the economical conditions of the cooperation, it is possibly to reduce the cost of business activities. The reliable classification of the suppliers is depended on the level of the detail of an assessment criteria and the scoring method. The main problem is the risk of the objective estimation of individual offers received from the suppliers. For this reason, the classification of suppliers is one of the key problems of the logistics controlling. Based on practical example, this paper presents the complexity of the problem of the classifications and the selection of suppliers according to different hierarchy of the importance of various criteria.

International Journal of Electronic Business Management , 2004,
Abstract: Because of the networking technologies progress made, and the collaboration theories developed, the relationship of suppliers and buyers is changed to a collaborative one nowadays. The performance of each member in a supply chain will affect the market competitiveness of the chain. Therefore, how to choose an appropriate collaborative partner becomes an important issue for the initiator of the supply chain. The performance quality of the supplier is the key factor of wining the competition in a market. If the performance quality of the supplier is good and stable, it can supply its downstream with sufficient quality resources and thus build competitive advantages. There are enterprises using information technology to assist the monitoring of the supply chain, from material flow to customer’s relationship. Information technologies, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), are employed to deal with the problem. Business transaction data, such as delivered quality, price, date, quantity, etc., can be saved in a database and then analyzed to form production policies. The aims of the research are to construct a framework of supplier monitoring information system and to propose a control-chart-based mechanism for monitoring the performance of suppliers in a business-to-business (B2B) supply chain environment. The research uses the delivered quality, date, and quantity as the monitoring indexes, and adopts the concept of control chart to construct an information system that monitors business performances of suppliers in a real time manner.
