Abstract [en]

Although much discussed in theory, supply chain management (SCM) is often problematic to carry out in practice. One exception is McDonald’s Sweden, which since its establishment has worked with suppliers and restaurants (franchisees) in a way that reminds of what SCM literature recommends. The purpose of this report is to describe and analyse the supply chain of McDonald’s Sweden from suppliers to franchisees.

Based on interviews with McDonald’s Sweden, suppliers and franchisees, McDonald’s supply chain is described and analysed according to SCM literature. Cooper and Ellram’s (1993) framework of SCM characteristics is used complemented with several other writers.

The study describes a supply chain where its members to a large extent collaborate as described in SCM literature. The report identifies and describes how significant SCM characteristics, such as information sharing, joint planning, and the sharing of risks and rewards are managed in the case. Finally, the report identifies market saturation and the search for economies of scale outside the primary supply chain as a challenge for future SCM practices. The case constitutes an interesting showcase where the ways in which the studied features are managed can inspire others businesses in succeeding in SCM.

Abstract [sv]

Trots att supply chain management (SCM) är väl diskuterat i teorin så är det ofta problematiskt att genomföra i praktiken. Ett undantag är McDonalds Sverige, som sedan starten arbetat med leverantörer och restauranger (franchisetagare) på ett sätt som påminner om vad litteratur inom SCM rekommenderar. Syftet med denna rapport är att beskriva och analysera McDonalds Sveriges supply chain från leverantörer till franchisetagare.

Baserat på intervjuer med McDonalds Sverige, leverantörer och franchisetagare är McDonalds försörjningskedja beskriven och analyserad utifrån SCM-litteratur. Cooper och Ellrams (1993) teorier inom SCM och dess olika egenskaper används kompletterat med flera andra författare.

Studien beskriver en försörjningskedja där medlemmarna i stor utsträckning samarbetar enligt SCM-litteraturen. I rapporten identifieras och beskrivs hur viktiga egenskaper inom SCM, såsom utbyte av information, gemensam planering och riskdelning hanteras. Slutligen identifierar rapporten marknadsmättnad och sökandet efter stordriftsfördelar utanför den primära försörjningskedjan som en utmaning för framtida SCM-praxis. Studien hur SCM fungerar i praktiken och kan inspirera andra företag i att lyckas inom området.
