A critical appraisal of aspects of the lean chain approach
- This paper critically appraises the supply chain concept, analysing the implications of the idea from the perspective of both individual firms and society and the economy at large. The discussion is centered around three hypotheses which concern markets, consumption, and industrial infrastructure. The paper concludes with some tentative suggestions for research and policy, and a proposition to extend the scope and responsibility of research in supply chain management.
