Empirical Research on Associations among Information Technology, Supply Chain Robustness and Supply Chain Performance

Xinrui Zhang, Hengshan Wang


Supply chain reliability and ability to do with risks are important research fields in SCM. Although it is intuitive
that supply chain’s ability to resist risks is likely to have a positive impact on supply chain performance, there is
little systematic analysis and documentation of the magnitude of these impacts in the literature. This paper
empirically documents the associations among information technology, supply chain robustness, and supply
chain performance. Based on a sample of 186 questionnaires, the results show the positive impact of information
technology on supply chain robustness and supply chain performance, and also the positive impact of supply
chain robustness and supply chain performance.
