Abstract

In many situations suppliers and customers are looking for ways to improve the co‐ordination of goods flow in both quantitative and qualitative ways. This is often called co‐makership. This article describes a case study of two companies setting up a co‐makership relationship. The relationship is evaluated on criteria like possible improvements, organisational impact and risk of the (increasing) (inter) dependence between the two companies. Both the benefits and the organisational impact of the relationship can be large. The risks of co‐makership are not easy to evaluate.
