Abstract: This paper aims to identify and analyse the main barriers in information sharing in supply chains. The barriers were identified through a detailed literature review followed by the screening of the barriers through analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to identify the most important barriers. The most important barriers thus identified are considered for further analysis by invoking interpretive structural modelling (ISM) to establish the relationship between these important barriers.

Keywords: information sharing; supply chain; interpretive structural modelling; ISM.
