Knowledge-sharing in a supply chain perspective with IT to support

    Project Details


    Knowledge cannot be put in a formula or a book and then exchanged for cash. Similarly, if two companies want to create new capabilities by combining their knowledge and skills in a unique way, they must create knowledge links to enable personal and information systems to work together closely. The development of new information technology has made it possible to share information/data and sometimes knowledge over great distance very fast, but it is not unproblematic to use this approach in the knowledge sharing process. The project focus is, how can the collaboration in a supply chain be configured so it increases the process of knowledge sharing and creation between the organizations, and how can the organizations take advance of IT to support this process? This project is closely linked to the two project groups CO-IMPROVE and IMERAS, which are actively involved in the project. The empirical study will be established in co-operation with CO-IMPROVE, IMERAS and their collaborators. The company in the IMARES context is Løgstør Rør/Martin Group and in the CO-IMPROVE content it is Sauer-Danfoss, K.P. Komponenter, Dania and Rea. Project duration: December 2001 to November 2004.
