Purpose – The goal of this research is to examine the influence of Quick Response on the supply chain performance. Furthermore, this study investigates the potential of Quick Response to be a more advanced form of supply chain collaboration program with extensive information sharing activities. Research design, data, and methodology – The mathematical model is developed to represent the two stage supply chain system with a single manufacturer and one retailer. In the numerical study with the proposed mathematical models, three supply chain systems including the traditional system, Quick Response, and the fully shared information system are compared in terms of their profits. Results – The numerical analysis shows both manufacturer and retailer obtain greater profits under Quick Response than in the traditional system. While the fully shared information outperforms Quick Response as well as the traditional system, it results in lower manufacturer’s profit compared with Quick Response. Conclusions – According to the numerical examples, Quick Response is the effective supply chain collaboration program that is beneficial to every supply chain member. The fully shared information system, as a more advanced form of collaboration than Quick Response can bring more benefits to the whole supply chain system, but it is necessary to prepare the proper incentive program that enables every member to share its benefits equally.
