Abstract

While supply chain management concepts are receiving increasingattention in literature and practice, the supply chain managementphilosophy is supported by a limited theoretical base. The industrialorganisation literature related to the advantages, disadvantages andapplications of vertical integration and obligational contracts isexplored. The industrial organisation literature regarding verticalintegration and obligational contracts is related to supply chainmanagement. The advantages and disadvantages which supply chainmanagement shares with vertical integration and obligational contractsare discussed. It is concluded that supply chain management is a way ofcombining many of the advantages of vertical integration andobligational contracts, while overcoming some of their disadvantages.Using the industrial organisation literature and findings from two casestudies, prerequisites are developed for supply chain management, andthree competitive situations are described. Supply chain managementholds promise as a competitive form, provided that certain hazards areavoided, and that a competitive advantage results.
