Abstract

"Recently, many system integration companies have begun to intensely focus on suppliers' involvement in the product realization process to enhance their competitiveness. The product architecture has a huge impact on the efficiency of the integrator's supplier network. One of the ways to enhance efficiency is to implement the lean principles while creating a collaborative design/manufacturing/supply chain environment. In this study, two distinct stages of the product realization process, namely, design stage and production stage are considered for determining the design and production supplier networks"--Abstract, page iv.
