Abstract

Two of the most pervasive trends in purchasing management duringthe 1980s were the increased usage of global sourcing and thedevelopment of JIT sourcing. Both practices have become quite popularbecause of the significant competitive benefits they provide to thefirms that successfully implement them. Despite their increasinglywidespread adoption, these two sourcing strategies have traditionallybeen viewed as incompatible therefore, most firms have not sought tointegrate them in their efforts to enhance competitive position.Explores the potential of using logistics to facilitate the concurrentusage of global and JIT sourcing. Combines a conceptual discussion withan empirical study to understand better the opportunities to developintegrated globalJIT materials.
