摘要: 基于对战略网络和网络嵌入相关文献的综述,论证了双边关系也会从所嵌入的网络中获益,而且是通过制造商的柔性这种基于网络信息的反应能力。通过所收集的有关制造商柔性和绩效的212份有效问卷,利用结构方程分析了制造商的柔性在分销网络和关系绩效之间的中介作用。结果显示,在强连接对物流服务质量的影响中,适应性柔性发挥了部分中介作用,而前摄性柔性在桥连接和关系满意度之间发挥了部分中介作用。
Abstract: Based on the literature review on strategic networks and network embeddedness, the benefits gained through the information-based capability of manufacturer’s flexibility from the network where the dyadic relationship is embedded was clarified. Through 212 valid questionnaires collected about manufacturers’ flexibility and performance, structural equation modelling analysed the mediation of manufacturer’s flexibility between distribution network and relationship performance. The results show that, adaptive flexibility has a partial mediation on the effect of strong ties on logistics service quality, while proactive flexibility has a partial mediation on the effect bridging ties on relationship satisfaction.
