A SUPPLY CHAIN MAPPING MODEL OF THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY UPSTREAM SECTOR: THE PROOF FROM INDONESIA
This study fills the gap in the supply chain mapping model of the textile industry upstream sector in Indonesia that it could identify comprehensively, a flow of products, finance, and information from upstream to downstream. This research used a supply chain mapping approach by illustrating the network structure of the supply chains horizontally and vertically from upstream to downstream. The total samples were 43 Fiber Making companies and 249 spinning companies. The result showed both industries had a strong integration as a continuous production process unit. The output was to give additional values for the exports and to contribute a large foreign exchange. Furthermore, the result of this study revealed that both industries had a high import dependency on the raw materials produced by the petrochemical and cotton industries. The research findings provided a better understanding for the scholars and the company managers to integrate a supplier and a consumer to create a better supply chain mapping model of the upstream sector of the textile industry in Indonesia.
