This study aims to explore the effect of supply chain integration (SCI) on operational capability. Using data collected from 201 Malaysian small-and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) and rigorous structural equation modeling methods, a total of one main effect and four sub-effects were hypothesized and tested. All the proposed hypotheses were found to be significant, suggesting positive relationships between SCI and operational capability, as well as between sub-constructs of SCI and operational capability. Overall, the findings are particularly important for SMMs owing to resource paucity and the need to draw upon SCI in order to ensure a sustainable operational capability. Recommendations for how to improve operational capability are provided accordingly.
