Abstract [en]

Previous studies have shown that suppliers not only contribute with their knowledge, but also benefit themselves from systematic knowledge exchanges with buyers. However, it remains rather unclear what suppliers actually do in order to integrate buyer knowledge. This paper provides detailed insights into the micro processes underlying knowledge integration between buyers and suppliers in development of complex system. A detailed case study of one development project at one large international supplier indicates that (1) content, mechanisms, and locus are useful dimensions to describe and analyze knowledge integration between suppliers and buyers; (2) these dimensions of knowledge integration change throughout the phases of the product development process; and (3) that knowledge integration is a multi-level process. Consequently, in order to integrate knowledge with buyers, suppliers need to organize product development as a dynamic process that allows changes of knowledge integration dimensions throughout different phases of development
