Critical Success Factors of Implementing e-Purcurement in Chemical Industries

Wu, Mei-Chi 08 July 2003 (has links)
Abstract Facing the increasing competitive global market, many businesses are looking for ways to utilize their resources efficiently so as to survive and make profits. To this end, e-Business has promised to provide a solution. Among the various aspects e-Business has addressed, e-Procurement has been shown to be a critical part since it has the potential of cutting cost, enabling the entire operation to become profitable. This thesis focuses on key factors to implement e-Procurement in both IT industries and Chemical industries. We analyze the two industries from five perspectives: strategy, organization, technology, environment, and performance. The successful experiences of IT industries in Taiwan give some useful directions to Chemical industries that just seek to implement e-Procurement. This research on Chemical industries has found the following five critical success factors : (1) Support from top management¡GTop management must fully support this project in human resource and financial aspects. In addition, authorization is also required to enable employees to be responsible for their decisions. (2) Setting up a team¡GAsk related departments to join this project team and assign a team leader for decision-making, plan-execution and intra-company communication. (3) Coordination of operation process¡GDraw a scale of the project, collect current operation process, consider the new process from the whole company viewpoint. And then, carry out the new process step by step. (4) Supply chain integration¡G e-Procurement is to integrate suppliers and customers, and to create a deep collaboration relationship among these strategic partners. A fully communication in advance among them is the key to get the ¡§win-win¡¨ situation. (5) Industrial environment: E-Procurement system is highly related to the level of computerization and the frequency of transactions among businesses. The level of computerization in businesses of different industries may be very different, and makes the effects of implementing E-Procurement system different.

Three essays on the theory and practice of defence procurement : the case of shipbuilding

Liston, Catherine January 1992 (has links)
In this thesis we examine three aspects of procurement policy in the context of asymmetric information. In Chapter 1, we identify an incentive for the contracted firm to underinvest in the comprehensiveness of its internal accounting system, a result similar to that due to Averch and Johnson (1962). The policy implications of this distortion are analysed using both a theoretical construct and numerical simulation. In Chapter 2, we identify a class of distortions generated by the practice of paying 'progress payments' to contracted firms in a model in which 'real' and 'symbolic' progress are not inextricably linked, and in which the procurement agency observes only the latter. In Chapter 3 we construct a simple dual-sector model in which a paternalist government uses bailouts to sustain faltering firms. The firm, knowing the motivation of its client, has an incentive to exploit that knowledge. This complicates the procurement problem in a manner explored in Chapter 3.
