||With rapid development of information technology, the company can find and communicate with new partners easily, which makes the relation more complex and unstable. How to improve the performance of the supply chain is an important issue. In this study, we try to discuss the problem from the three factors including switching cost, trust and information sharing. |
First, we propose a conceptual model of switching cost, trust, information sharing and supply chain performance. The performance indexes include the average fulfillment rate, average stock cost, and average cycle time. Second, in order to verify the model, we construct a simulation environment of supply chain and construct a decision mechanism based on the conceptual model. Final, we observe the effect and variation of the different order demand environment, the different information sharing threshold, different propensity of switching cost and trust, and different product price and different producing technology.
