Abstract [en]

This research explores integration of the suppliers' workflows in the OEM's new product development (NPD) process, to support the production ramp-up. Based on multiple-case study approach, incorporating both the OEM and the supplier perspective, this research explains critical aspects for the integration of suppliers' workflows in the OEM's NPD process, and when these aspects need to be addressed. The results show that face-to-face meeting on a project level, standardized work model, readiness of the component specifications, role of Supplier Quality Assurance (SQA) engineer, quality assurance document provided to the suppliers, etc. are critical aspects. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.

The perspectives of both the customer and the suppliers were considered. One limitation could be that even though the suppliers manufacture according to specifications (involved in the survey) they might have different characteristics, which can influence the findings in this study, especially regarding the timing of involvement and selection. This research could be further developed in several directions. First, a quantitative analysis can be carried out based on the aspects suggested in this study. Second, it would be beneficial to investigate integration of suppliers responsible not only for the industrialisation, but also suppliers involved in the product design. Third, the paper can explore the supplier readiness aspects to a greater extent in a future work. Acknowledgements The financial support for this research was received from the funding agency, the Knowledge Foundation, and is gratefully acknowledged. We also thank the participants from the involved companies for their time and willingness to share their experiences.
