Abstract

In this paper we present a model to estimate transaction costs in a network of subcontractors and their customers in metal industry. The research questions are: 1) with what kind of a tool could the transaction costs be measured in a network and what is the level of transaction costs (TCs) in metal industry in Finland 2) what factors have a significant effect on TCs in a network, and 3) can TCs be divided into positive, neutral and negative costs.
