Complexity, antagonism and supply chains: A conceptual framework
University of Borås, School of Engineering. (Logistik)
2014 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper aims to develop a conceptual framework for antagonistic threats in logistics. This relates aspects of criminology (such as opportunity and crime displacement) to supply chain performance in order to capture the dynamic complexity for antagonistic threats. The research method used in this paper is desk-top reasoning. This paper uses deductive reasoning to describe how different well-known theories from criminology can support the scientific field of logistics and supply chain management with regards to the problem with antagonistic threats. Insights from complexity theory guide the search for guiding principles that describe the behaviour of the system. With the antagonistic threat framework will the lack of empirical data not be devastating due to that it is theoretical possible to foresee complex systemic changes due to the interactions between involved theoretical viewpoints. The conceptual framework can be used as a supporting factor or an analytic tool together with different types of empirical data regarding antagonistic threats against supply chains. This paper maintains that the understanding of the relationship between potential perpetrators and theft preventing measures is a key issue to reduce antagonistic threat problems within the transport network.
