      The purpose of this paper is to elucidate modern production systems in which coordination and control among companies have become widespread globally. In particular, the authors aim to test the Global Value Chain (GVC) governance theory empirically with a focus on the state of Apple’s GVC governance. More specifically, the authors attempt to determine whether the relationships theoretically explained in Gereffi, Humphrey and Sturgeon (2005) can be observed in Apple’s GVC and contribute toward understanding Apple’s state of coordination. This study shows the state of coordination in Apple’s GVC does not necessarily correspond to the theoretical types. Simply put, the three determinants do not reflect the state of coordination in Apple’s GVC. This paper adopts augmenting and complementary explanations from the resource-dependence perspective to elucidate Apple’s GVC governance by empirically illustrating how Apple’s GVC governance are achieved through the accompanying asymmetric power relationships between the company and its suppliers.

    • Evolution of Competition between Firms in the Post-war Automobile Industry:The Rotary Engine Strategy of Toyo Kogyo Peer-reviewed

      The purpose of this paper is to elucidate one aspect of competition between firms in the post-war Japanese automobile industry, using the development competition surrounding the rotary engine as a case study. This paper examines the evolution of development competition, while focusing on the factors underlying Toyo Kogyo's success in achieving practical application of the rotary engine, and the reasons why competing firms participated in the development of rotary engines.The late 1960s was a time when Toyota and Nissan increased their shares of the Japanese market, establishing an oligopolistic system dominated by two companies. Toyota increased its market share by outsourcing some assembly and development to itaku firms, and realizing a full-line strategy. Toyo Kogyo, on the other hand, successfully developed the world's first practical rotary engine in 1967, and executed a differentiation strategy of supplying automobiles equipped with rotary engines. Toyo Kogyo believed that new expressways and road networks would increase demand for rotary engine automobiles with superior acceleration performance. Key factors which enabled Toyo Kogyo to achieve the technical innovation of a practical rotary engine were their outstanding technical capabilities, based on their high rate of in-house production, and the existence of a dealer network which learned the special maintenance techniques needed for rotary engines.For competing firms, the rotary engine was one possible technology for complying with emission regulations. Taking the new emission regulations as an opportunity, GM, Ford, Toyota, and Nissan participated in rotary engine development, which had thus far been led by Toyo Kogyo, thus resulting in broader development competition. This was a competition to find environmental technology, and involved firms from the U.S. as well as Japan. Therefore, when fuel prices rose due to the oil crisis, and practical three-way catalysts meeting emissions standards were developed, the competing companies withdrew from rotary engine development.

    • Distribution Networks in the Automobile Industry during the Period of High Economic Growth::The Case of Toyo Kogyo Peer-reviewed

      KIKUCHI Wataru

      The purpose of this paper is to examine the process of development of the distribution network at Toyo Kogyo in the postwar period, and discuss the differences between automobile manufacturers regarding automobile distribution.<br>The dealer network built by Toyo Kogyo had little capital compared to Toyota and Nissan Motor. Therefore Toyo Kogyo had to provide dealers with a large amount of funding for capital investment. Toyo Kogyo dealers were at a comparative disadvantage in terms of funding. It is conjectured that the lack of funding for dealers acted as a constraint, to a certain degree, on expansion of sales bases by Toyo Kogyo. On the other hand, the careful deployment of bases by dealers with large amounts of capital can be regarded as one factor underlying the competitive advantage of Toyota.<br>The wage system for salesmen was likely significant in promoting sales volume at Toyo Kogyo dealers. Saitama Mazda developed a wage system with a high sales margin, and salesmen were given incentives for increasing sales. The fact that a wage with system with a high sales margin was developed at Saitama Mazda has considerable significance in terms of research history. Previously, it was understood that, in the wage systems of dealers in the Japanese automobile industry, the base pay accounted for a high percentage of compensation and the sales margin was low. The case of Saitama Mazda suggests that there were differences between companies in Japan regarding the approach to sales margins.

    • Subcontracting in the Automobile Industry during the High Growth Period:The Case of Toyo Kogyo Peer-reviewed

      The purpose of this paper is to clarify the features of subcontracting in the automobile industry during the high growth period, using Toyo Kogyo as an example. Toyo Kogyo reallocated its management resources from three-wheeled to four-wheeled vehicles in the era of high growth, and was number three in production of four-wheeled vehicles after 1960.<br>From the late 1950s to the early 1960s, Toyo Kogyo expanded its use of subcontractors. The subcontractors were small firms located in Hiroshima. They had high sales dependence on Toyo Kogyo, and performed processing after receiving drawings and materials from Toyo Kogyo. In the process of expanding its use of subcontractors, Toyo Kogyo developed a department to manage subcontractors, and built an institution for adjusting order quantities to suit the management efforts of subcontractors. In addition, in transactions between Toyo Kogyo and its subcontractors, the ownership of dies and tools reverted to Toyo Kogyo. Toyo Kogyo selected governance mechanisms to promote ex post competition.<br>After 1960, the wage differentials between automobile manufacturers and subcontractors exhibited a sharply declining trend. This reduction in wage differentials was brought about by a relative increase in wages at small subcontractors. One cause of this payment of wages was the realization of efficient management at subcontractors. As indicated by Shinei Kogyo (treated in this paper), there were also subcontractors who booked a higher return on total assets than Toyo Kogyo because they increased total asset turnover by using machines efficiently. Part of the development of the Japanese automobile industry was achieved by the automobile manufacturers developing diverse institutions to inhibit opportunistic behavior, and suppliers deploying efficient management over a broad range.

      This study aims to clarify various patterns and process of suppliers’ strategic behaviors, using the three-axis framework named “Growth Strategy Cup” from a dynamic perspective. This study was conducted by a qualitative method with in-depth interviews with Japanese suppliers in the automotive industry. As the main analysis objects, we focused on several independent suppliers who have more strategic discretion than keiretsu suppliers.
      The conclusion is as follows. Firstly, a supplier’s possible maximum growth is dependent on three axes; customer scope, product scope, and core competence. Secondly, the possible maximum extension of customer scope and product scope is affected by core competence. We found significant core competence elements such as the scope and expertise of product technologies, marketing know-how and international transaction skills as well as conventional organizational capabilities.
