Abstract

This study investigates the influence of new technology anticipation by manufacturing firms on performance. Complementarily, a comparative analysis between Brazilian and plants located in other countries was performed. To test these issues, data was collected from 337 firms located in 11 countries, including Brazil. Key aspects in Operations Management such as manufacturing strategy, functional integration, supply chain management and supplier partnership were considered as relevant for technology anticipation. Results suggest that manufacturing strategy, functional integration, and supplier partnership are important for firms located abroad, while only functional integration is important for Brazilian firms. Finally, there are evidences suggesting a positive relationship between new technology anticipation and operational performance for international and Brazilian firms.
