Abstract: Knowledge transfer within a manufacturing network is challenging. However, to unlock the potential of internationally dispersed networks, knowledge transfer is crucial. We add to literature as we not only focus on the coordination mechanism needed to coordinate a network but enhance the framework with plant management behaviour. Based on social-psychological theories we analyse what hinders or enhances knowledge transfer within a manufacturing network. Finally, we present a conceptual framework of manufacturing network coordination which combines macro (coordination mechanism) and micro level (knowledge sharing behaviour) research. In addition, we discuss which results are contradicting, depending on operations management or social psychological theory perspective.
