Quotation Rosic, Heidrun, Jammernegg, Werner. 2009. The environmental sustainability of quick response concepts. 20th Annual Conference of the Production and Operations Management Society, Orlando, Vereinigte Staaten/USA, 01.05-04.05.




At the moment environmental sustainability is a highly discussed topic in supply chain management (SCM). This is due to several internal or external drivers, like customer pressure or legislative requirements. In the past, several trends have emerged in SCM, such as centralization, outsourcing, and offshoring. A trend that represents a hybrid form is quick response with reactive capacity, i.e. an enterprise uses on the one hand inflexible but cheap offshore capacity and on the other hand flexible but more expensive nearshore capacity. The decision-making in supply chains is traditionally based on economic criteria which are expressed by financial and non-financial measures like total cost and customer service. From the perspective of sustainable development in the evaluation of these processes also the environmental dimension has to be considered. Therefore, we present a stylized quick response model and show how the environmental dimension could be integrated into decision-making.
