Abstract

This paper seeks to understand the relationship between virtual organizations (VOs) and international strategic alliances (ISAs) in the manufacturing industry. Aiming to develop frameworks demonstrating the position and role of the global manufacturing virtual network (GMVN) in the spectrum between VO and ISA, the paper suggests that GMVNs represent a new form of manufacturing system based on Internet interfirm collaborations.
