Supply chain management information system (SCMIS) a case study in vamco (Axle Manufacturing Factory)

Khoei, Mohammadreza (2010) Supply chain management information system (SCMIS) a case study in vamco (Axle Manufacturing Factory). Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.



Today high competitive market needs fast, effective, high responsiveness, online interactive, 24 hours 7 days availability, easy to follow up orders processing, etc. For researchers, the model provides an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the range of Supply Chain Management Information System (SCMIS) capabilities. With further study, the model and concepts could also be adapted for other strategic IS applications. Practitioners can gain a better understanding of the capabilities of their implemented SCMIS and the expected capabilities that future SCMIS may provide. Supply chain management information systems are the information systems between companies that employ information and communication technology to arrange information inside and among the participator of a supply chain such as clients, sellers, providers, and distributors. Companies frequently use a portfolio of supply chain management information systems, which characteristically contain legacy systems linked by electronic data interchange, packaged applications employing Web-based exchange of information or ideas, or some other blend of information connection technology. Thus, the goal of this thesis is to identify the system’s main elements, analyze the system’s operational issues, identify the inputs and outputs for each element of the system, define the interfaces between the related activities in the system, design relation data model and develop a prototype SCMIS. It is hoped that the model that will be developed is able to integrate and enrich theories of competitive strategy, supply chain management, and interorganizational information systems.
