BeschreibungTime is an important operational performance dimension for many companies. They need processes with short lead times to meet customers'
expectations. The goal for such enterprises is to be fast and responsive at a reasonable level of cost. An important enabler for short lead times in
supply chains is information and information sharing. This paper seeks to clarify the relationship between lead time and information sharing. This is
done by first providing a review of the existing literature dealing with time as an important performance measure in supply chain management.
Second, an overview of the different concepts, models and best practices of information sharing is presented with special focus on their
interdependency with lead time in a supply chain. Finally a framework is built, relating these concepts, models and best practices of information
sharing to lead time.
