ABSTRACT
Integrating suppliers' knowledge and expertise in new product development becomes increasingly important for manufacturing firms' product success. Most studies adapt the manufacturing firms' standpoint and research the benefits of manufacturing firms in new product development. Relatively little attention has been given to the suppliers' perspective in their research. This paper studies suppliers in working partnerships with manufacturing firms in new product development. A model is proposed to study the impact of relationship strength on the tacit knowledge transfer from manufacturing firms to suppliers in new product development. It also investigates the impact of tacit knowledge transfer on supplier new product performance.
