Abstract: The need for supplier involvement in new product development (NPD) process is becoming more intensive in today's competitive markets. Previous studies reveal that different factors and relations such as internal capabilities, external coordination, and their combined effect can influence NPD performance. However, the interactions among these factors are still not well understood (Brown and Eisenhardt, 1995). This study concentrates on the three important factors which affect inter-firm product development process: buyer-supplier communication, joint problem solving, and buyer's degree of technical knowledge about the development project. Based on the replies of 59 companies with product development activities in Singapore, we investigated how these factors may affect product development project performance in terms of product quality and development time. Moreover, we examined the moderating effect of buyer's technical knowledge about the development project, by level of supplier responsibility in the process, and by the level of product complexity on these relationships.
