RICHARDSON, L.J.  e  SNADDON, D.R.. An exploratory study of long supply chain competition: Selected cases in the South African aerospace sector. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.1, pp.155-166. ISSN 2224-7890.

This article investigates how supply chains, especially long supply chains, compete in the South African aerospace industry. A multiple case study methodology is employed, involving six selected firms. Semi-structured interviews provide the primary source of data. Multiple case analysis identifies similarities in competitive dimension criteria for supplier-firm and customer-firm units in the supply chain. Results indicate that supplier-firm units compete on the basis of speed, dependability, quality, flexibility, and cost. Customer-firm units compete on the basis of speed, quality, and flexibility. The results also identify focus areas for future research into how long supply chains compete in the South African aerospace industry.
