Abstract

Building on the flexibility classification schemes and flexibility typologies literature, and recent literature on supply chain management, a new model of flexibility is proposed: supply chain flexibility (SCF). The model specifies several important characteristics that are required within and between each node of the supply chain to improve supply chain flexibility. Implications for supply chain researchers and practitioners are discussed.
