Abstract: This paper describes research that has sought to create a structured and integrated methodology that guides manufacturers through the decision of strategic positioning within global supply chains. The position of a company is concerned with deciding a boundary and configuration of internal and external business activities to the company and is directly related to initiatives such as outsourcing, make or buy, and offshoring. This paper provides an indepth description of this concept, describes work carried out to form a methodology for strategic positioning within the global supply chain, and presents the details of the methodology.This research has made a significant contribution to the knowledge on how manufacturing companies can form a strategic positioning within global supply chains.
