The sample selection consisted of Turkish suppliers, manufacturers and British retailers. Findings- While the SCI model implementation provides advantages and benefits with 33% higher rate in efficiency and lead time, 27% in competition and quality, 20% in profit margin and stability, in contrast, dependability and supplier/buyer commitments, new opportunities and implementation skills, new IT investment and labour commitments with 33%, 27% and 20% respectively were forecasted as disadvantages and concerns.

While it creates a positive impact, especially in preventing waste, accelerating processes and reducing costs, it also creates risks in terms of dependency and trust.
