Despite the importance of the shipbuilding industry to the nation’s economic growth as well as to move people, goods, and services between the islands, Indonesia’s maritime infrastructure had been neglected by the government. In addition, the organisation of production in this project-based sector has been overlooked in the academic literature. To address these gaps, this thesis explores the competitiveness and governance of the Indonesian shipbuilding industry.
A study of Indonesian shipbuilding industry was undertaken through qualitative fifty-two semi-structured interviews and desk-based research to understand the source of shipyard’s competitiveness. The conceptual framework integrates the concept of competitiveness and governance, and the analysis is focused on the project-based relationships occurs in three different levels of: firm-level (micro relationship), local production network (meso relationship), and global production network (macro relationship).
The research makes a contribution to current conceptions of the organisation of production and the competitiveness of Project-Based Firm (PBF). Shipyard as a PBF undertaking complex and various form of decision making in order to complete and deliver shipbuilding project. To remain competitive, shipyard required to strategically balance the degree of involvement of LPN and GPN depending on the nature of the contract, the shipyard’s current capacity, and the type of product ordered. Taking into account the importance of firm and non-firm actors, the conceptual framework of Project-based Production Networks (PPN) was developed to guide the analysis.
