Supply chain visibility continues to be a major concern for organizations. While there is a general perception that supplychain visibility is driven by information sharing and enabling information technologies, there are gaps in our understandingof what constitutes supply chain visibility and the specific information technology configurations that may be implementedfor enabling visibility. This manuscript presents a possible framework for conceptualizing information sharing needs andmechanisms that need to be enabled using information technologies in the pursuit of supply chain visibility. A multiple casestudy approach is proposed for examining the ways in which real-world organizations embedded in supply chain networksmay aim for and achieve supply chain visibility.
