    Abstract

    Based on the data obtained from the sixth version of International Manufacturing
    Strategy Survey (IMSS VI), this paper explores the relationships at the level of plant
    between (1) inter-plant coordination and operational performance, and (2) between
    inter-plant coordination and internal/external integration. It is found that (1) inter-plant coordination is positively and significantly related to delivery; (2) internal integration is positively and significantly associated with inter-plant coordination, while inter-plant coordination has positive and significant influences on both supplier and customer integration; and (3) the relationships between inter-plant coordination and cost/flexibility are fully mediated by supplier integration.
