Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Companies pursuing improvements to their global supply chain (SC) are challenged with unravelling the true cost of operating with their supply chain design (SCD). This challenge is further intensified as SCs are faced with increasing uncertainty. To rectify this it is investigated how Cost Accounting, Operational Modelling and SCM inform decision making for new SCDs. Through four embedded cases, a gap is found between the practice of a global OEM and literature. Results shows complications when assessing SCDs due to limited understanding of the internal activity costs, supply chain dynamics and how uncertainties affects the SC cost performance.
