International Journal of Management and Enterprise Development (IJMED), Vol. 12, No. 2, 2012

Abstract: This paper examines the reasons why enterprises in semiconductor industry supply networks should collaborate, and identifies the key activities of managing horizontal and vertical collaboration simultaneously from the perspective of procurement. A framework for e-market supported lateral collaboration is proposed for the enterprise development by considering the impact of external uncertainty, e-market support, corporate strategy and core competency. Collaborative procurement, from the perspective of information and resource sharing, can be used by these enterprises to develop appropriate settings of the critical attributes considered for better overall performance in the joint ventures and alliances.
