Abstract This study investigates the impact of individual risk aversion on replenishment decisions in a multi-echelon supply chain, and explores whether this impact is affected by experiential learning. The methodology applied is that of observational studies, while the multi-echelon supply chain is modeled through the classical Beer Game. Participants in the study are purchasing and supply chain professionals. Results suggest that risk aversion leads to higher orders, Risk aversion persists eve...

In the industrial context, the zero-defect philosophy is the basis of all supplier quality improvement actions. To reach this imperative target, a measurement of parts per million is not expedient, instead measuring incidents shall make the supplier evaluation more effective. Supplier development of course is performed before the serial production processes start. Nevertheless, the yearly recalls, for example, in the automobile industry are increasing (Steinkamp and Reed, in Automotive warranty ...

Traditionally, the focus in the supply chains has been on enabling the smooth material and information flows along the chain. However, in recent years, the potential of efficient financial flows and the inter-organizational perspective to working capital (WC) management have received increasing interest among companies as well as researchers. The purpose of this chapter is to illustrate the potential of financial collaboration by proposing a model for WC optimization in the supply chain via paym...

The idea of this chapter is to identify and make use of findings in nature that have a specific relevance for purchasing and supply management. Most of the findings are observed or studied with wild animals such as in birds, wolves, fish, fireflies, bush crickets, chimpanzees, capuchin monkeys, and prairie voles. All of the research that I studied and cited is confirmed to fulfil ethical standards for the care of animals. Beyond learnings from animal behaviour, this chapter discusses characteris...

Using a supply chain experiment, this study investigates how individual self-confidence affects inventory management decisions. An empirical model of order quantity determination shows that high-confidence players do not keep current demand into account but prefer to work on a target stock. On the contrary, low-confidence players choose the order quantity by following observed demand closely, resulting in lower supply chain costs but also in lower service levels for the customer. Results have us...

Industry 4.0 technologies play a crucial role in assisting the automotive sector maintain competitiveness. Industry 4.0 often finds uneven application among SME suppliers. As a consequence of the supplier's technological constraints, the digitalization efforts of customers may not achieve their full value creation potential. The aim of this paper is to shed light on strategic decisions that facilitate SME implementation of Industry 4.0 initiatives. We use two case studies of suppliers to a large...

The literature on the impact of risk aversion on supply chains (SCs) is relatively limited and, in particular, there is a dearth of theory and a lack of empirical evidence concerning: (1) the impact of individual risk aversion on the generation and dynamics of the order policy (e.g. order patterns and inventory holding costs); (2) the impact of several combinations of risk-averse members in each stage of a multi-echelon SC. We explore these gaps through a multi-method approach (i.e. human experi...

The management of working capital and financial supply chains has recently gained increasing interest in companies as well as in academia. The advantages of digitalization are diverse in this area, and there is remarkable potential to release tied-up working capital through collaborative actions in the value chains. In this chapter, we review selected literature on measuring and managing inter-organizational working capital, and discuss the effect of digitalization on working capital management....

A working capital model, consisting of the management of inventory, accounts receivable and accounts payable, is a part of the business model and can be a source of competitive advantage. This paper studies working capital models in the ICT industry from the supply chain perspective. The financial value chain analysis showed that companies within the same branch had remarkable differences in their working capital management. Some companies were even able to operate with a negative cycle time of ...

The impact of operational working capital management (including inventories, accounts receivable and accounts payable) on relative profitability in the value chain context is studied. The empirical study offers numerical analysis with real world numbers concentrating on improving profitability through working capital management. The prior finding of a negative relation between the cycle time of working capital and profitability is too blinkered, as companies in the value chain have and should ha...
