ABSTRACT

The development of B2B E
-
Commerce is more and more
importance, and its successful depend on efficient electronic connect.
By
using information technology and information system whic
h can
accelerate communication, interaction and information exchanging. Our
research forced on “B plan” of our government about how to execute
e
-
Procurement between main industries and their suppliers. We used
relation
-
specific asset and knowledge
-
sharing
routine to describe
e
-
Procurement, and assume inter
-
organization change. In order to
understand network relationships and information structural relation, we
use power
-
depend, reciprocity, information centrality, complexity,
formalizaton, quality, and inte
nsity to analyze.

The case of our research about B plan participant
are

Mitac and
Inventec, and collect their B plan summaries reports. The results of our
research show that B2B e
-
Procurement about
the extent of
specific asset
with supplier is

high and we

find the

power

will be higher.
On the other
hand, we also find with knowledge
-
sharing routine, information show
formalization
,
centrality

and complexity
. After B2B electronic connect,
we see higher information quality and intensity, even bring the
recipro
city relationships.
