Close Inter-firm Relationships in the Open Network Systems that maintain Competition and Cooperation

Access this Article


In this survey, we investigated how the characteristics of transactions have changed in the information age. As a result of our survey, we observed that spot transactions produce negative effects on performance in some cases. Further results imply that open information networks based on close inter-firm relationships save transaction cost, decrease feedback time, and increase competitive advantages.The original publication is available at JAIST Press 2005 : Proceedings of the First World Congress of the International Federation for Systems Research : The New Roles of Systems Sciences For a Knowledge-based Society : Nov. 14-17, 2019, Kobe, JapanSymposium 2, Session 2 : Creation of Agent-Based Social Systems Sciences Management Systems
