Application of a scientific approach to evaluate IC industrial supply chain linkage

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The current studies on supply chain management are limited in their analysis of the linkages between firms in related industries. This study estimates the degree of linkages among designers, manufacturers and firms of testing and packaging. Significant linkage is demonstrated by the high correlation coefficients of the RSP ratio in IC industrial supply chain. But the magnitude of linkage is low by regression analysis. This paper has contributed to: (1) the development of strategic relationship by collaboration between upstream and downstream of the chain partners between firms in IC industry; and (2) to enhance robust IC supply chain by utilizing supply chain linkages from mutual cooperation.
