This study first conceptualizes and investigates five dimensions of SCM activities, such as organizational capacity, revitalization support collaboration, appraisal and responsibility, and information system activities. Second, this study develops three dimensions of a supply chain structure, and proposes a balanced scorecard (BSC) model in order to measure business performance. And then, this study establishes too research hypotheses as follows: H1. The SCM activities varies with the supply chain structure. H2. The management performance varies with the supply chain structure. In the questionnaire survey for empirical analysis, this study carefully selected 809 of companies in Korea. We conducted a survey by mail and collected 127 data. Out of 127 data we actually used 103 responses for statistical analysis. After conducting statistical analysis, we could find the results as followed: 1) The supply chain structure was classified into three networks through a clustering procedure, such as supply network, conversion network, and distribution network, and these networks were used to testify hypotheses. As a result the effect of SCM activities varies according to three networks and especially, the companies in distribution network were more active than those in supply and conversion networks doing SCM activities. 2) We may conclude that business performance varies with three networks, and distribution network achieves better performance than supply and conversion networks do.
