Abstract

Increasingly, supply chain integration and supply chain management are receiving a great deal of attention from researchers and practitioners alike. Supply chain management has been viewed as a viable initiative to enhance sustainable competitive advantage under increased national and international competition. The use of survey-based empirical research has been perceived as a desirable way in supply chain management research, because the use of empirical data helps support the understanding of supply chain management practices within industries. Strategic sourcing and supplier selection play vital role in managing the supply chain due to their contributions to the success of the company. This chapter surveys the current state-of-the art of the survey-based empirical research on strategic sourcing and supplier selection. The findings based on an in-depth analysis of thirty-eight articles are discussed, which will help both the academicians and the practitioners in textile/apparel/fashion industries to understand more about the latest development and trends in survey-based empirical research on strategic sourcing and supplier selection. An agenda for future research is also presented.
