This research studies the impact of information technology-enabled coordination on product modularisation in the automotive industry. A structural equation model is tested based on 177 responses to questionnaires from 177 Korean first-tier automotive suppliers. The results provide support for the hypothesis that high quality of exchanged information enables better supply chain coordination, which in turn supports product modularisation.
