Global service factory: Integrating the global supply chain through service

Abstract

The service factory concept suggests that the traditional service role of the factory, that of meeting production schedules, can be significantly expanded. Recent empirical studies have demonstrated that manufacturing performance, particularly delivery performance, can be enhanced through expanded service roles that integrate both internal and external services. Despite such benefits, there has been little, if any, discussion of applying and expanding the service factory concept to global supply chains. This paper serves as both a first step toward achieving this conceptualization and a call for further research.
