Abstract

The research described in this paper demonstrates how individual operational capabilities and the collective
knowledge and expertise of a collaborative customer–supplier network can be harnessed to manage the
challenges associated with the provision of a requisite level of product variety and customisation. It concerns
the discussion and application of a previously published approach to the classification of collaborative
networks, the justification of the extension to this approach and the use of the approach as a knowledge-based
reference framework to demonstrate how product variety and customisation can be supported across different
forms of collaborative customer–supplier networks. In addition, explanations are provided on how
collaborative networks can be classified, on how their adaptive capabilities can be established, and on the
characteristics and attributes that particular types of network require in order to handle their commitment to
the provision of variety and customisation.
