This study supports the idea that supply chain integration decisions are essential in the choice of strategy for the electric automotive industry in Morocco. Some studies indicate that the most admired and feared competitors today are companies that link customers and suppliers and their internal processes to tightly integrated networks. On the other hand, empirical studies have shown that supply chain integration is no guarantee of success. On the basis of these assertions, we will examine the relationship between supply chain operational performance-dependent variables (cost, quality, flexibility, and time) and integration-independent variables (customer, supplier, and internal integration). The current research is considered a causality study, addressing the effect of the three dimensions of integration on the operational performance of companies in the Moroccan electric automotive sector. Empirical data were collected from 253 companies, using a questionnaire developed and refined through interviews with experts and the panel of judges. Statistical techniques such as descriptive statistics, correlation and multiple regressions were used. The results of the study indicate a significant positive relationship between the integrated supply chain and the operational performance of the supply chain of companies in the Moroccan electrical automotive sector. Thus, the results affirmed that this sector interlocutors report a close relationship between integration and supply chain performance.
Key words: Automotive supply chain / electric automotive sector / impact of integration on operational performance / integrated supply chain / operational performance
