Abstract

This paper explores some of the issues arising from the potential implementation of virtual environments (VEs) for the management and control of supply chains. VEs, more commonly known as Virtual Reality (VR), coupled with world-wide telecommunications technology will potentially enable organisations that are physically remote from each other, to operate processes and obtain performance information in other organisations. This paper examines what is theoretically possible with VEs within supply chains and maps this onto research currently being carried out which investigates how manufacturing supply chains operate in the United Kingdom, especially Scotland.
