These are Efficiency-Oriented, FlexibleOriented and Comprehensive Information Systems Strategies. Five dimensions were identified as supply chain performance dimensions in the study. These dimensions are called cost performance, logistics performance, customer service performance, integration performance and flexibility performance. Efficiency-Oriented Information Systems Strategy can impact supply chain performance at the highest level.
