Managers today need access to opportunities and insights that enable their firm to achieve a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Supply chain initiatives (e.g., integration and flexibility) are of interest because of their proven benefits. This research examines information sharing, in conjunction with supply chain integration and flexibility, to determine their impact on competitive advantage for small-scale manufacturing firms in India. Our findings indicate that supply chain integration has a significant impact on supply chain flexibility, however not in the direction hypothesized. Unfortunately the other hypothesized relationships (information systems to supply chain flexibility and supply chain flexibility to competitive advantage) did not manifest. We will use these results as the impetus for further research in this area.
