THE EFFECTS OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES ON AUTOMOTIVE SUPPLY CHAIN AND FIRM PERFORMANCE

Omar Boubker

Ibn Zohr University, Agadir, Morocco

Abstract:

Background: In today's context, information technology is increasingly taking a great interest for academics and practitioners. IT plays a critical role in supply chain readiness to meet market changes by lowering costs and enhancing quality. Hence, the objective of this article is to explore the effect of information technology integration (ITI) and supply chain information management (SCIM) on supply chain integration (SCI) and its association with supply chain performance (SCP) and firm performance in the automotive supply chain.

Methods: The research data were collected from 177 middle and top-level managers of automotive firms installed in Morocco. The structural equation modelling under the partial least squares approach was used in testing the hypotheses and proposed model.

Results: The study findings show that ITI and SCIM positively and significantly affect the level of SCI.  In addition, SCI positively and significantly affects SCP and firm performance. Furthermore, SCP plays a direct and positive role in improving firm performance. 

Conclusions: The study results provide direction on how automotive SC managers might enhance automotive SCP and firm performance.

Keywords: Supply chain, information technology, IT integration, information management, performance
