Abstract

This paper reports the results of research into the connections between the transaction attributes and buyer-supplier relationships (BSR) in advanced manufacturing technology (AMT) acquisition and implementation in Malaysia. Based on close examination and analysis of seven Malaysian firms that have invested in AMT, the results show there is an association between transaction attributes and buyer-supplier relationships. Examination of the cases also provides useful insights that are especially pertinent to an improved understanding of buyer-supplier relationships in the procurement of capital equipment, about which the research literature currently is quite sparse.
