Xu, Wenjing (2006) Understanding Uncertainties in Supply Chain when Outsourcing Manufacturing Operations to China. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
This paper describes the uncertainties in supply chain when western companies outsourcing manufacturing operations to china. A large amount of uncertainties could happen in supply chain and they are divided into 3 groups including supply uncertainties, process uncertainties and demand uncertainties. The survey aims to identify what uncertainties most frequently occur in supply chain, what kinds of activities have been taken to reduce uncertainties and whether these activities are effective in practice. According to the survey result, this paper provides some recommendations on how to lessen those frequent uncertainties in supply chain as well.
