Abstract

The rules and practices of supply-side collaboration changed with the automaker moving to modular assembly, and modular supply becomes dominate of the emerging automotive industry. The major purpose of this paper is to identify how modular supply affects the supply-side collaboration, and how to organize the upstream supply network effectively to supply these two type modules. Based on the case studies in Chinese automotive industry and literature reviews, we conclude that there are two type modules, fully integrated module and partial integrated module, and there are two types module supplier correspondingly. This paper observes the supply-side collaboration not only on the function level to identify the function deployment among design, production, inbound logistics and information, but also on the role level to analysis the relationship among automaker, module supplier and 3PL provider. And we summarized the findings into a 3C framework followed the 3C framework approach, which includes the context and capability requirements for supply-side collaboration when providing the two different type modules, and the configuration regarding the upstream supply network structure, the supply side collaboration process structure, and the supported information architecture.
