Key issues for a telecom supplier in the transition towards a software focused supply chain

Norrman, Andreas LU and Lundberg, Christer (2003) 8th International Symposium on Logistics In Logistics and networked organisations : proceedings of the 8th International Symposium on Logistics, Sevilla, Spain, 6 - 8th July 2003 p.17-28
Abstract
Based on a case study of a telecom company’s transition towards more software value in their products, we describe and discuss SCM issues related to when traditional manufacturers go from a “hardware focus” to a mixed product configuration. Although software supply chain is not much discussed in logistics, it seems that logistics/SCM frameworks also fit many software supply issues. A specific software issue might be to control the software “product flow” and adopt the “money flow” to software’s increased part of delivered value. Here we propose “Right To Use” licenses as connector between software and “supply chain flows”.
