Paper Title:
Heterogeneity of Suppliers and Knowledge Transfer in the Supply Chain
  Abstract

This paper empirically studied knowledge transfer between manufacturers and suppliers in the auto manufacturing supply chain. We focused on different suppliers based on merchandise they supplied for auto makers, and analyzed their impact on knowledge transfer in two directions: from manufacturers to suppliers, and from suppliers to manufacturers. Results verified that the former direction of knowledge transfer was significantly impacted by supplier’s roles, but knowledge transfer from suppliers to manufacturers could not be perfectly explained by supplier’s roles. This paper theoretically links suppliers’ role with knowledge transfer between auto makers and suppliers, and the results can assist firms choosing right knowledge transfer strategies according to different suppliers’ roles.
