Information Technology Support for Configuration Problem Solving
Supply chain management and information technology are tightly coupled. Implementation of supply chain strategies would be very difficult without the support of information technology. At the same time, many developments in information technology have arisen from requirements set by enterprises seeking collaboration with their partners in the supply chain environment. For instance, the development of web services has been driven by a need for flexibility and more open information systems interfaces to support reconfigurability.
