This book examines the opportunities for, and the effects and benefits of, collaborative working practices and their impact on supply chain performance. The first part of the book focuses on modeling the supply chain using conceptual frameworks to describe the relationship between collaboration and performance. The second part examines the issues around information systems alignment, and ensuring the management and coordination of interactions with suppliers and customers. The final part focuses on the various different formalized approaches that may be taken to analyze the impact of any given collaboration process, coordination mechanism, or decision-making behavior.

About Author

Val rie Botta-Genoulaz has been involved in several research projects in supply chain management and information systems and coordinated the second COPILOTES research project. Her research interests address supply chain management, information sharing, ERP systems, collaborative practices, and their impact on enterprise performance. Jean-Pierre Campagne is Head of the LIESP Laboratory in Lyon, France and he coordinated the COPILOTES project. His research focuses on the synchronization of flows and activities in the supply chain, and on distributed inventory management. Daniel Llerena has been involved in several research projects in supply chain management and experimental economics. His research is focused on information sharing in the supply chain, combining theoretical approaches such as game theory and behavioral economics. Claude Pellegrin has been involved in several research projects in supply chain management, manufacturing strategy, production management and project management. He focuses particularly on the combination of qualitative and quantitative methodologies in empirical research.
